Seabirds

Sjófuglar

These birds belong to different orders but are grouped together here because they all breed by the sea and live and find food almost entirely on sea. They very often live in bird colonies, cliff colonies, laying just one egg and the chick stays in the nest longer than most birds. Seabirds have a long life, mature slowly and mate for life.
