Inverness in Marin County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Point Reyes National Seashore
Murres are rapid fliers and skillful divers. They pursue fish underwater by stroking with their wings and steering with their feet. On land they are not so deft. An ornithologist, noting their clumsy landings on the precarious ledges, has named them the “awkward squad.”
