IUCN Conservation Status: Least Concern
Breeding in only a few large colonies along the North Atlantic, the Northern Gannet spends most of its life at sea. Flocks engage in spectacular bouts of plunge-diving for fish, with hundreds of birds diving into the ocean from heights of up to 40 meters (130 feet).
Calls loud, harsh, and grating. Soft "krok" given at sea similar to call of Common Raven.
