Swipe to see what nesting season looks like for common murres on the Farallons. In the second picture, all of those little black and white dots on the rocks are nesting pairs getting ready to lay their eggs.
Since murres nest on cliffs, their eggs are shaped like a cone. That way they don't roll off the edge of the cliff - they just roll in a circle!
