  Kittiwake - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Kittiwakes (genus Rissa) are two closely related seabird species in the gull family Laridae.
The downy young of Kittiwakes are white, since they have no need of camouflage from predators, and do not wander from the nest like Larus gulls for obvious safety reasons.
At fledging, the juveniles differ from the adults in having a fl 'W' band across the length of the wings and whiter secondary and primary feathers behind the fl 'W', a fl hind-neck collar and a fl terminal band on the tail.

In North America, the Black-legged Kittiwake spans both coasts, as far north as the ice-free waters of Alaska in the west and the Great Banks of Newfoundland in the east.
The Black-legged Kittiwake nests on ledges of offshore islands, sea stacks, or inaccessible areas of coastal mainland.
The Black-legged Kittiwake has many adaptations to nesting on vertical sea cliffs, including facing towards the cliff, so that their tails project over the edge and their feet are on solid ground.

 Kittiwake-up call on sandeel fisheries and climate change
Therefore, to safeguard kittiwake populations we recommend that the current closure of the commercial sandeel fishery remain in place indefinitely,” Frederiksen says.
Kittiwakes in the North Sea feed almost exclusively on lesser sandeels, and sandeel numbers are reduced not only by commercial fishing, where they are used in fishmeal, but also by climate change because rising winter sea temperatures adversely affect the recruitment of young sandeels to the stock.
Using data on kittiwake numbers, breeding success and survival of adults, from 1986 to 2002, Frederiksen modelled the impact of changes in the sandeel fishery and in sea temperature on the kittiwake’s population.
