Harris, M. P.; Bull, J.; Wanless, S.. 2000 Common Guillemots Uria aalge successfully feed two chicks. Atlantic Seabirds, 2 (2). 92-94.Full text not available from this repository.
A pair of Common Guillemots Uria aalge with a small chick adopted a second and successfully reared both to normal fledging age. A single day's feeding watch suggested that the pair doubled the normal feeding rate and the adults spent little time together at the nest-site, though the chick was never left unattended.
