Biologists recently discovered Kittlitz’s murrelets nesting on Adak, and since then have searched the island for more birds. An elusive and little understood seabird, Kittlitz’s murrelets are a species of concern because of their low numbers and restricted range. Their cryptic mottled plumage and secretive behavior around their solitary nest sites makes locating murrelet nests seem a lot like looking for a needle in a haystack. If eyes are not the best tool for finding Kittlitz nests, what about noses? This summer a new member joined the team: Otto, a ten-month-old Deutsch-Drahthaar (akin to a German wirehair pointer). Even in the Aleutians, Otto is not the first dog to work alongside Refuge biologists. Read more about Otto and how we went to the dogs to bring back an endangered species.
