210 m (690 ft) – The thick-billed murre (Uria lomvia) can remain underwater for over 3 minutes. It uses its wings to swim underwater where it feeds on invertebrates and small fish. It also carries prey items over long distances (+100 km) to feed its offspring. It breeds in the Arctic regions of North America, Europe, and Asia. (a.k.a. Brünnich’s Guillemot)
