Description

Nesting site nearby. From the Cornell Birds of North America focal species account -

Five distinct subspecies recognized by Storer (Storer 1952a) and Udvardy (Udvardy 1963b). All but one occur in North America. C. columba snowi breeds in the Kurile Is., C. c. columba from Kamchatka north to Bering Strait, C. c. kaiurka in the w.-central Aleutian and Commander islands, C.c. adianta from the central Aleutians to Washington State, and C. c. eureka in Oregon and California. One record of kaiurka in North America (British Columbia; Dickinson 1953). Dement'ev et al. (Dement'ev and Gladkov 1951) regarded Pigeon Guillemot as a subspecies of Black Guillemot. Black and Pigeon Guillemots currently recognised as superspecies (American Ornithologists' Union 1983). Occasional Black Guillemots (C. grylle mandtii) summer in Pigeon Guillemot colonies in the Bering Sea; copulation attempts the only evidence of breeding behavior (Bédard 1966, Konyukhov and Ewins 1992). Black Guillemots slightly smaller than Pigeon Guillemots, Spectacled Guillemots considerably larger. Vocalizations of Black and Pigeon Guillemots differ noticeably (Cramp 1985a, Nelson 1985a).
