When I was quite young we had a similar episode of dovekies arriving in a storm in my part of Nova Scotia. My mother and godmother were involved in helping return them to the water. I remember seeing and touching them. There was also a razor-billed auk (a larger relative) which did, indeed, have a razor sharp beak.

Thanks for the article!
