Valentine’s Day: Say It With Auklets


Specifically, utterly charming Parakeet Auklets. These are sequential photos of courtship behavior, and were taken at St. Paul Island, one of the Pribilof Islands, in the middle of the Bering Sea, back in 2014. You’ll have to imagine the vocalizations: when their bills are open, they are giving a “whinnying” call, a kind of hoarse chittering.

This blog post is for WC’s Valentine, Mrs. WC. Without her, there simply wouldn’t be any bird photos.

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone.
