Fulmars come in one of two color morphs: a light one which is almost entirely white, and a dark one which is uniformly grey. Though similar in appearance to gulls, fulmars are in fact members of the Procellariidae family, which include petrels and shearwaters. The northern fulmar has a wingspan of 40 to 44 inches. Body weight can range from 0.99 to 2.2 pounds. These species are grey and white with a pale yellow, thick, bill and bluish legs; however there is both a light morph and dark morph.

Found near coastal areas.
