IUCN Conservation Status: Endangered
A chunky Pacific seabird, the Marbled Murrelet is unique among alcids (puffin relatives) in nesting high up in large trees in coastal forests. Little-known until the past few decades, it now is thought to be seriously threatened by logging.
Common call is a smooth "keer," sometimes uttered as two syllables. Also issues a short, forceful whistle-like note at the nest.
