Razorbill – Bearing Gifts


Bearing Gifts

The massive expressionless face of a windswept precipice
A substrate for confidential affairs
Events that often go unnoticed
There develops a new generation
Progenitors provide

A strikingly handsome adult Razorbill [a seabird of the Auk family which also includes Puffins and Murres] returns to its nest site bearing gifts captured for its developing young on the marge of an ancient rocky Atlantic cliff.
