Fledgling arctic tern, the birds have been doing well eating lots of Sandlance.

Common tern fledgling

Razorbills are scarce now, at the island, the terns are thinning out but some Puffins will be there until labor day

there were @1,000 pairs of Puffins breeding in the gulf of Maine in 1975,  about 7,000 pairs in 2010
