About the Northern Fulmar
Also known as: Fulmar, Arctic Fulmar, Blue Fulmar

The Northern Fulmar is a species of sea bird found in subarctic parts of the North Atlantic and North Pacific Oceans. It is an abundant species that is also known simply as Fulmar, or by the name Arctic Fulmar.

Northern Fulmars are polymorphic; they come in different color morphs: dark, light, or intermediate (mostly found in the Pacific). They are strong fliers. These sea birds are also relatively long-lived, with individuals living 30 or more years in the wild.

Like other birds in the Procellariiformes order, Fulmars have nasal passages (naricorns) attached to the upper bill. The bills themselves are split into 7 to 9 horny plates.
