Coastal and sea birds

This section showcases sea birds that are like any other birds we see, but are specifically adapted for life in the marine realm. Sea birds are capable of very long flights, have dense and waterproof feathers, webbed feet, and more layers of fat than the average non-marine bird. They also live longer, on average. They hunt at sea and come back to the land to breed and nest. Fun fact : sea birds have their very own desalination plant - glands in their bodies that filter out excess salt!
