A fossil of the Great Auk Pinguinus impennis from Middle Pleistocene deposits in Bermuda
Atlantic seabirds , Volume 5 - Issue 2 p. 81- 84
A partial premaxilla of a Great Auk Pinguinus impennis was recovered from Middle Pleistocene deposits on Green Island, Bermuda. These deposits formed during the interglacial sea-level rise of Marine Isotope Stage 11 and are about 400 000 years old. This constitutes the first record of Great Auk for Bermuda and probably represents a bird that died at sea and was washed ashore.
