  1. Jun 04,  · Kittiwakes are coastal breeding birds ranging in the North Pacific, North Atlantic and Arctic oceans. They form large, dense, noisy colonies during the summer reproductive period, often sharing habitat with murres. They are the only gull species that are exclusively cliff-nesting. The Black-legged Kittiwake is one of the most numerous of.
  2. Range and distribution. The black-legged kittiwake is a coastal bird of the arctic to subarctic regions of the world. It can be found all across the northern coasts of the Atlantic, from Canada to Greenland as well as on the Pacific side from Alaska to the coast of Siberia. Black-legged kittiwakes' wintering range extends further south from the St-Lawrence to the southern coast of New Jersey Family: Laridae.
  3. A dainty gull of northern oceans, Black-legged Kittiwakes nest in teeming colonies on cliffs of the North Atlantic, North Pacific, and Arctic. On these sheer, rocky sea stacks, their unceasing cries of “kittiwake” join with the crashing surf to make the classic sound of a seabird colony. Their neat white and gray plumage is accented by a bright yellow bill and jet-black legs.
  4. Kittiwake: Small, coastal gull a bit larger than Black-headed Gull. White with grey back and wings that become paler near the black tips. Unmarked, green-yellow bill. Dark eye and dark grey legs and feet. Breeds in large colonies. Soars and has fast, swooping flight.
  5. This bird species has different identifying features depending on sex/age/season. Kittiwake (adult summer plumage) Feather colour: Kittiwakes are strictly coastal gulls. In the breeding season, look for them at seabird colonies around the UK. In late summer and autumn they can be seen flying past offshore, or gathering at roosts.
  6. A very common small gull of northern and offshore waters, named for its nasal "ki-ti-waak" callnotes. Seldom comes to land south of its nesting range, but may be seen from shore on either coast, especially during storms. Often abundant on the northern islands where it nests. There the kittiwakes are seen on narrow cliff ledges, perched facing the wall, their tails sticking out over the edge.
  7. The kittiwake is easily identifiable at its clifftop nesting colonies, particularly when you hear its 'kittiwake' call. Adults are silvery-grey above and white below, with a white head and black wingtips. Young birds have a black 'W' across their wings and back, a black neck-collar and a black band on their tail.
  8. The Kittiwake is known colloquially in some areas as Tickleass or Tickleace. It is the only gull that dives and swims underwater to capture food. The name "kittiwake" is derived from the bird's peculiar cry, a shrill 'kittee-wa-aaake, kitte-wa-aaake'. They are not commonly seen from shore, and generally spend the entire winter on the open ocean.
