|Summary=Presumed Rare in the Sitka area. Not reported from the road system. |presence=Reported |spring=Rare |summer=Rare |fall=Rare |winter=Rare |breeding=Not expected to breed |webster=Scarce resident. These are the only records: Two seen 16 December 1978 on the Christmas count; Willett took one at Biorka Island 24 July 1912 (Willett 1914); I twice saw two on Sitka Sound in 1940- 4 April and 13 April. Kessel and Gibson (MS) list one seen at Little Port Walter 10 September 1959 by M. B. Troutman and another in Sitka Sound 14 July 1976 by B. F. King and others. With the absence of sea level glaciers, the species probably does not nest in the Sitka region. Agler, Kendall, and Irons lumped their data for the two species of Brachyramphus murrelets, but estimated that no more than 1% of them were brevirostris. }}
