Gannets by the thousands.

This is the gannet colony at Cape St. Mary’s Ecological Reserve, Newfoundland, Canada, June 6, 2018

It is the most accessible seabird colony in North America.
Thousands of gulls, razorbills, common murres, black-legged kittiwakes, northern gannets, and double-crested and great cormorants nest here.
In the winter 20,000 scoters, long-tailed ducks, harlequin, dovekies, thick-billed murres, and kittiwakes can be found here.

Morus bassanus
Most plunge-dives are relatively shallow, but the Northern Gannet can dive as deep as 22 meters (72 feet). It uses its wings and feet to swim deeper in pursuit of fish.
