New birds at the Aquarium

The alcid exhibit has received FIVE new birds in the two months! First were two female common murres, joining the male we already had. No idea yet if there will be any pairing up since it's winter, but they all hang out together which is good. More recently are three male Cassin's Auklets, pictured above. They are small and cute and sound like rubber duckies. They don't get as fancy as any of the other alcids on exhibit, but they have the chibi going for them. All are from Seaworld Orlando, which was closing its alcid exhibit, but are native to the west coast.
