U is for Uria Aalge
also known as the Common Murre
Common Murre are numerous, but vulnerable to oil spills and gill-netting. The North American Waterbird Conservation Plan estimates a population of 4,250,000 in North America, rates the species an 11 out of 20 on the Continental Concern Score, and lists it as a Species of Moderate Concern. They are not on the 2014 State of the Birds Watch List. Pacific populations have declined and partially recovered, while Atlantic populations appear to be increasing.
