Parakeet Auklet (aethia psittacula) Science Article 1
We are not aware of any published accounts of the behavior of the Parakeet Auklet. Previous studies of this species have centered on its ecology in the Bering Sea (Bedard 1969a, 1969b, Sealy 1968, Sealy and Bedard 1973). Our intent is to discuss and relate the basic behavior patterns of this species to the reproductive cycle and components of the nesting environment.
