San Juan Island Bird Help Needed

I just returned from a short week sailing the San Juans, and we were seeing some auklets but could never get close enough to identify the species. Would those have been rhinoceros auklets this time of year?

cruising is entirely about showing up--in boat shoes.

Looks like they could be rhinoceros auklets any time of year up there.
