Red feet are a characteristic shared with the black guillemots, or "sea pigeons," one of which (left foreground) is a young bird, and the other (center) an adult in summer dress. Two more are flying low. The little quail-size dovekies (right, showing summer and winter coats) are prized as food by Eskimos.
