What is the furthest a flying bird dives under the water?

    I found one record of the thick-billed murre (Brunnich’s guillemont) — a large, black-and-white bird of the auk family — diving 689′ (210 m) below the surface, with average dives for the species being around 330′ or so. They dive for fish, squid, and crustaceans. For comparison, the record-holder for non-flying birds is the emperor penguin, with a recorded maximum depth of 1,772′ (540 m).
