Kuikka

Black-throated Diver (Gavia arctica), 30.11.2006, Keminmaa, Finland.

 

This bird has today landed to the local Fire Stations black tartan, covered with ice. Maybe they sometimes see wrong and think tartan is water. It had injured it`s wing and toe a little, but all seem to be anyway OK.

 

Anyway I took and moved bird to river Kemijoki to fish with other fishermen. Bird dived immediately five meters and rose up with fish in its bill. Here it`s already further on the river spreading it`s wings.
