Marbled Murrelet

A small seabird in the auk family was once known as the "Australian Bumble Bee" by fishermen and as the "fogbird" or "fog lark" by loggers. Though it was first described in 1789, a nest site wasn't discovered until 1961 by ornithologists in Asia; a North American nest was not found until 1974. A group of auks has many collective nouns, including a "colony", "loomery", and "raft" of auks. Threatened by logging of old growth forests.
