  1. Is there enough information on these bad images to id this bird as a Common Murre? Photos were taken from shore off of the coast of Nova Scotia this morning. There seems to be white tips on the secondaries and a short stubby tail. It flew low to the water, disappearing between the sea swells. Any thoughts? Thanks... Ps The last image is enlarged from the next to last.

  2. I zoomed in on this bird that was way out over the harbour and thought it was an immature Northern Gannet with the black tipped wings, but on viewing the two pictures at home, it looks like it might be an immature Red-throated Loon. It's flight pattern was steady flapping like a loon whereas Gannets tend to flap and then glide a little. Can you help with these poor images?
