Pigeon Guillemots Being Sweet

Pigeon Guillemots are quite fascinating sea birds with their bright red feet and red mouths, artistic white wingpatches, and preference to nest in holes of tall cliffs. Usually they don't like us humans to get too close, but they are so accustomed to the Washington State Ferries, you can see them quite close from the lower deck. I loved watching these two together. Parent and child, perhaps?
