Alcidae

Auklets,Murrelets & Puffins.

The family Alcidae includes approximately 25 species of auks, auklets, murrelets and puffins. They are superficially similar to penguins due to their black-and-white colors, their upright posture and some of their habits. Nevertheless they are not closely related to the penguins, but rather are an example of moderate convergent evolution.
