Marine Birds
Seabirds do not comprise a taxonomic or evolutionary group of birds; they are simply defined as birds that spend most of their life feeding and living on the open ocean, coming only to land to breed. When it comes to seabirds, the most heavily used waters in the world are part of Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. There are about 90 species of seabirds known to occur regularly within the sanctuary, and among these species about 30 are dominant. There are also about 90 species of tidal and wetland birds occurring on the shores and wetlands along the sanctuary boundary, and about 30 of these are also dominant.
