Rhinocerous Auklet
Cerorhinca monocerata

I was standing on the bridge when I noticed this bird swimming in the channel. I took this photo and was tempted to go back down and try to find it from closer on shore, but at the time I figured it was something I had already photographed before and just did not recognize from a distance. Rhinocerous auklets are more typically found further offshore.
