Tossin' 'em Back
After examining the photos I took of the common loon more closely, almost every one of it's catches turned out to be small blue crabs. I didn't count them, but it was probably eight or nine that I recorded in about an hour. In that time, he had caught others that I didn't film. I swear it looks like he's smiling in this image. Unlike almost every other bird, loons do not have hollow bones. I was beginning to wonder how it was ever going to get off the ground. Turns out, I needn't have worried. It never flew in the span of time I watched.
