Great to hear :) They have it much better in water...

Thanks. We did help it back into the water, no signs of injury that we could see. It seemed ok once back in the water. Murre are very cool!

Nice picture Brendan, hope this Loon wasn't injured... Did you get the bird back into the water? I did rescue some Common Murre last week myself ;)
