A report was submitted to eBird today of a Thick-billed Murre seen from the New London-Orient ferry on Jan. 20. The following details were provided:

On water at close range. Clearly not a Razorbill because bill slimmer, more pointed and tapered, and lacked projecting tail. Common Murre excluded because face appeared dark in combination with white throat, and back appeared deep black. I would expect chocolately tones of Common Murre to be evident on such a good view.
