Figure 1. Distribution of the Thick-billed Murre in North America.

Breeding colonies numbered are those referred to frequently in the text: 1 Gannet Is., 2 Hantzsch I., 3 Akpatok I., 4 Digges I., 5 Coats I., 6 Coburg I., 7 Prince Leopold I., 8 Middleton I., 9 Semidi Is., 10 Buldir I., 11 Pribilof Is., 12 St. Mathew I., 13 St. Lawrence I., 14 Cape Thompson. Winter range includes only areas where the species is normally found: seaward limits are mainly conjectural. Large parts of the year-round range are occupied in winter only as ice conditions permit. This species also breeds in Europe and Asia. See text for details.
