The Washington Gap Analysis Project created breeding bird maps only. The non-breeding birds (e.g., wintering, pelagic (coastal), and birds expanding their ranges) are represented only by NatureMapping sightings.
The Washington Gap Analysis Project could not find any historical research records (i.e., Breeding Bird Atlas, Breeding Bird Survey, Bird Banding and Recovery) for 73 species of birds. The Northern Fulmar is one of the species.
NatureMapping observations reported by townships throughout the year.
This pelagic bird off both coasts of the North American continent are common and increasing. In the summer they are abundant in the Bering Strait. Breeding takes place off north-west and north-east Alaska.Text edited by Gussie Litwer
