The braggarts

Let me present the black guillemots.  This small alcid, of the same family as the puffin, nest in rock crevices on cliffs along the sea shore.  They are great fisherman of sandeel, a small and long fish which can be likened to a small eel and which are of a red wine color.  The guillemots get together in small groups and get excited by discussing of some hot topics. When they fly, you may notice the big white stain on their wings from many hundred yards from the coast… just like mirrors.  
 Good day. Louis
