I saw this on massbird.    How delightful.     They Murrells looks happy and well adapted to its environment.    Peter has released their bird back into Cape Cod bay.

A thick-billed Murre crash dived onto a parking lot in Orleans in the dark, rain last night.  A 7th grader’s parent picked it up, put it into a box and brought it to Mr. Trull.  I will release it in the Bay on my 5th period prep (2PM) today.  In the meantime, this healthy, preening, active alcid is in the 40 gallon aquarium in my classroom, diving for sunfish, swimming underwater, watching the fish swim below it, rearing up and flapping, giving my students a Biology, Ornithology, behavioral, Natural History lesson they will never forget. Not to mention it’s a gorgeous bird.
