"Ask of the sea-bird if it loves the sea.." ~ Oscar Wilde

This beautiful Northern Gannet was on the shore line...curled up and clearly injured. She let me stroke her neck...as the other gannet I had found years ago let me do. I called Natural Resources..they said they couldn't get out till morning...I hope the sweet baby made it.

 

If you have never seen them in action...watch this! They are truly majestic.
