Penguins in Key West?

Not sure what type of bird this is, but it really looks like a small penguin. He was swimming right up to the boats cast netting pilchards.  Pretty cool.

Okay, I just read about this mystery bird on the MyFWC Facebook page after posting the photos above.  The bird is not a penguin, but rather a razorbill which has been moving into the Southeast US.  According to the MyFWC facebook post razorbills spend their entire lives in the cold waters of New England and Canadian Atlantic Provinces.  You can read the entire article on the MyFWC Facebook page.
