    Description

    We present here an overview of the ecology, abundance, and distribution of the subspecies of the Marbled Murrelet inhabiting the coasts of Asia. In most regards, the species is similar to the North American race with respect to its feeding, breeding, molt, and habitat ecology. It is, however, a migratory species, moving into southern parts of its range in the Sea of Okhotsk during the winter. The population has not been censused, but may number in the tens of thousands. Populations in Asia are threatened by logging of breeding habitat, oil pollution, and gill nets.
