Bridled Guillemot

Wildlife Wednesday #38

Uria aalge - Guillemot

 Some guillemots have a distinctive white mark around their eye referred to as a bridle. In this colony on Lunga something like one in ten birds were bridled. The proportion of bridled birds increases in the north of their range.

The bridles give the birds an elegant air, at least most of the time...
