Identifying Kittlitz’s Murrelet nesting habitat in North America at the landscape scale

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

The Kittlitz’s Murrelet (Brachyramphus brevirostris) is a small, non-colonial seabird endemic to marine waters of Alaska and eastern Russia that may have experienced significant population decline in recent decades, in part because of low reproductive success and terrestrial threats. Although recent studies have shed new light on Kittlitz’s Murrelet nesting habitat in a few discrete areas, the location and extent of other possible nesting areas throughout most of its range remains unclear. This data release consists of (1) nest locations for the Kittlitz’s Murrelet (2) potential Kittlitz’s Murrelet nesting habitat.
