Brief Summary

Read full entry
Razorbills are expert swimmers and divers. Their short wings work just as well above water as under water. Diving down to 120 meter in search of lesser sandeel or other fish is no problem. In the air, they are true acrobats. They can flap their wings so quickly that you can't even follow it with the naked eye. This rapid wing movement allows them to fly low over the water surface and navigate between the waves.
