Nice one, kozoga! Congrats.
Well-deserved SOTD, kozoga! When I first saw the photo, the bird looked like it had the head of a cobra snake.
Congrats kozoga on your brilliant SOTD.
Congratulations kozoga, you Red-throated Loon is our Spotting of the Day!"How elegant with its triangular red throat patch and equally red iris! This Red-throated Loon (Gavia stellata) is our Spotting of the Day. Also know as red-throated diver, this loon (family Gaviidae) is a migratory aquatic bird found in the northern hemisphere which breeds primarily in the Arctic and winters in northern coastal waters. It has inspired a poem by Scottish poet Alexander Hutchison; here is the last verse:"Who calls to the dark,who calls to the wind onthe surface of the water?Who prompts the others to dip and rise? Eyes likeseeds of garnet. Lightestand brightest: gavia stellatathe red-throated diver."Read the entire poem here: https://buff.ly/2yyrPJ1 "Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/projectnoah/pho...Twitter:https://twitter.com/projectnoah/status/9...
