The Black-legged Kittiwake, called just Kittiwake in Europe, is a
gull with widespread distribution along coasts of much of
the north Atlantic and north Pacific oceans. Its call is
said to sound like "Kittee-wayke".
Kittiwakes nest on high cliffs inaccessible to most potential
predators. Their short legs are usually black but can be
grey and even, rarely, pink.
