Massbirders,
Martin Wilhelm Mandt (1800-1858) was a German zoologist/physician. In 1822 he described a subspecies of Black Guillemot (Cepphus grylle) and called it C. g. mandtii. A specimen of this subspecies has been in the area of Macmillan wharf, Provincetown for a few weeks, much whiter than the typical C. grylle. Photographed today.
