Report Details

I am attaching a photo of a dead Murre that I found on our beach. There were 3 other dead Murres within a few100 feet, scattered along the waterline. Additionally, there was one more dead Murre about a mile to the north (Coast Watch Mile 209). This was quite unusual. I either run or bike along this stretch of beach almost every day and rarely see dead animals.

We have noticed that during the winter storms the sand on the beach moves (presumably offshore) and then is redeposited during spring.
