The Dovekie is the smallest member of the auk family. Another name given to the Dovekie is actually the Small Auk. This small dark plumaged seabird has been reported as a very rare visitor to the waters off Cuba. It is the most abundant seabird in the north Atlantic Ocean. The Dovekie is the size of a robin and nests in cavities that they dig out on the side of cliffs and hills, next to the seas.
