Subject: Thick-billed Murre, Kure Beach
I'm a few hours late with this, but earlier this afternoon I had good looks at a THICK-BILLED MURRE from the Kure Beach Pier. I took a few photos that I will eventually attach to an ebird checklist. The bird was actively swimming just past the wave break, and then eventually took off and flew elsewhere. I'm not sure if this bird will still be around, but it continues the trend of interesting alcids along the coast.  
Happy birding,
