Welcome to the Guillemot Research Group

We are dedicated to the research, education and protection of the Pigeon Guillemot. Based on Whidbey Island in north Puget Sound, we actively monitor approximately 1,000 Pigeon Guillemots that gather into colonies to breed in our seaside bluffs. These entertaining and endearing black and white seabirds with fire-engine-red feet symbolize healthy coastal waters.
