The fulmar (fulmarus glacialis) is a seabird in the family procellariidae. It is very similar (but not related) to gulls: it has white plumage with gray back and upperwing and gray and yellow bill. Its strong wings allow it to soar over the sea for long periods. It is about 50 cm long. It feeds on fish, small squids and plancton. The name "fulmar" comes from the norwegian fulmar, which means "dirty seagull". Infact, when fulmar chicks are attacked by predators, they puke a smelly orange-yellow oily liquid to make them run away.
