Auk or guillomot type black and white water bird. Swims above water in a duck like fashion. Under water appears to "fly" with quick strokes, almost raptor like. Very quick. Never observed to fly in the air. Reminiscent of a penguin, auk like.
Atlantic Ocean on around a "jetty" or pier. Corralling small fish and stealing fish from fishing lines of fisherman when possible.
Never observed in this area before by me or the regular fishermen at the inlet. Additional witness is a man named Dave, whom is in attendance at the jetty every Sunday.
