Day 34- Pigeon Guillemot

Day #34 (4/11/2014) Pigeon Guillemot
We might just be in love with the coastline of the Pacific Northwest! There are so many animals to see and observe! We noticed these cute little black birds on the cliffs where we spent the day looking at tide pools. Turns out these birds are related to puffins and we love puffins!

We had the best time learning about the animals of the coasts here! We really enjoyed watching these birds dive for their meals. Whosh! Splash! Yum!
