This Red-throated Loon (or: Diver) (Roodkeelduiker) is in bad shape. The feathers seem to be worn out and though he is still feeding – it will assumably not be long before the bird dies. Sad, especially since it seems to have oil residue on it’s belly. This morning a rescue-activity was set up, but to no avail – the bird is still too fit for that :-(. Hopefully at a second try will be more successful, so the bird has at least a chance of getting cleaned and being fed.. Who knows ?

zag vanmiddag dat je langs het Verversingskanaal de Roodkeel fotografeerde en vond later je melding terug bij Waarneming. Mijn complimenten voor deze kunstzinnige opname(s) !
