Fulmars superficially resemble gulls, but are readily distinguished by their flight on stiff wings, and their tube noses. They breed on cliffs, laying one or rarely two eggs on a ledge of bare rock or a grassy cliff. Outside the breeding season, they are pelagic, feeding on fish, squid, and shrimp in the open ocean. They are long-lived for birds, living for up to 40 years.
