Ocean Beach--Dead Murrelet

On August 2, my wife, Rosita, and I found what we thought was a dead Marbled Murrelet on Ocean Beach at the south end of the Great Highway.

After seeing the photos posted today by May Woon of a Common Murre and juvenile, I will retract my observation and say that what we found was almost certainly a dead Common Murre juvenile. Can't say as I have a lot of experience with them, either.
