Marbled Murrelet

The Marbled Murrelet or Brachyramphus marmoratus, is a unique bird that is found in the Pacific Northwest. They spend their winters at sea eating fish, as they are surface divers, which means they can dive under the surface of the water using their wings to swim to catch fish.They nest in giant old growth redwood trees that are over 200 feet tall. The Marbled Murrelet is important to the Redwood forest because they provide the forest with diversity, they are an endangered species and these birds are found only near large redwood trees.They deserve to be Organism of the Year because they are beautiful birds who are truly mysterious and unique.
