Marbled Murrelet

Brachyramphus marmoratus

This species has been recorded approximately 20 times in the Pribilofs with those records scattered across much of the year. The majority are from the spring (mid-May to early June), with a couple of summer records, several fall records, and a single winter record. This pattern of occurrence likely involves several modes of occurrence for this species in the Pribilofs from lost spring migrants, non-breeders or wandering failed breeders in the summer, and the push out to sea after the breeding season in the fall.
