Murrey wasn’t expected to survive, but boy, look at her now!

This common murre joins us from Nauset Beach in Orleans, Massachusetts, where she was found in February, cold and lethargic with a deep, two-inch-long laceration on her left thigh.

Murrey, deemed a male at the time, was taken to Wild Care Inc., a wildlife rehabilitation center in Cape Cod, for immediate care. Not expecting him to survive the night, the Wild Care staff stabilized Murrey with warmth and fluids, administered antibiotics and cleaned and closed the wound. Much to their delight, Murrey’s will to survive carried him into the next morning.
Once he was fully stable and eating on his own, Wild Care staff placed him into a seabird therapy pool filled with saltwater to condition his body and regain waterproofing—a seabird’s source of insulation against cold ocean temperatures.
Murrey regained all of his waterproofing except for the area around the wound, making him non-releasable.
Several months and 1,500 miles later, Murrey’s story continues with our common murre and puffins in the Scott Aquarium.
By the way, as it turns out, according to DNA tests she’s a healthy female!

Here are three different species of seabirds recuperating in our outdoor aquatic pool. The Clark's Grebe has white coloring above the eye, whereas the Western Grebe has black coloring below the eye. The two birds in the back are called Common Murres and people often mistake them for penguins! All of these birds spend the majority of their lives in water, so if you ever see them on shore they are usually sick or injured and need to go to a wildlife rescue.

Puffins and murres show off their beautiful lift-based swimming patterns. Not quite as graceful as penguins, but the same mechanisms are employed. #puffins #commonmurre #montereybayaquarium #zootrips #locomotion #swimming

Ugh, Murre. Stop being so... common.
