Pigeon Guillemot - lift off, after a running start

Pigeon Guillemot
at Dungeness National
Wildlife Refuge
July 2011

Runs on Water!
Check out the bright red feet as this Guillemot runs to liftoff!

Watch out for the other Guy!
First aggressive behavior, and then friends just hanging out.

How Guillemots Get Down!
Stall flight first, then a torpedo with wings.

Get High with a Friend
Ride the waves, chase, watch the fish, and wave good-bye.
