Winters in Florida's costal bays and oceans
This bird was rescued after being found in a parking lot. It was then transferred to a rehabilitation center that specializes in water birds. Sometimes water birds like this loon as well as diving ducks and grebes land on wet pavement thinking its water. Due to their small legs positioned far back on their large bodies they are unable to stand and can not get of the ground.
