Seabirds from NC outer banks

Recommended Posts

Not sure on any of these, but maybe they can be ID'd.   The first I think may be a Manx Shearwater.  I saw all of these birds on Jeanettes pier today, and the Manx has been reported there many times.  This is the only shot I got, but it did have a white underside when viewed with my 12x bins  (much too windy today to try to use a scope).  Wing shape looks like it might be right for Manx.

The next pic shows a group of birds that I saw several large flocks of.  Thinking maybe Red Breasted Merganser as I see long thin bills and the color pattern looks right.

I can't come up with an ID for the last 3 photos.  Because of the wing shape and color I am thinking some sort of pelagic, maybe Auks of some kind.  Forgot my Sibley's in VT, so I am relying on what I can find online and haven't found a good reference for seabirds yet.
