Over 20,000 Common Murres inhabit the beautiful coastline of Newfoundland’s southwestern Avalon peninsula. As a member of the auk family, they are similar in some ways to penguins in their coloring, posture and habits, but never the less, they are not closely related to penguins. Unlike penguins, these birds do fly although with their short wings, they must flap quite rapidly to maintain flight.
