60 Ton Waterbird?
By John Wiley
We happened to see these humpback whales feeding just offshore on a recent flight, and snapped this just as one of them surfaced for a deep breath. I got curious about their unusually long pectoral fins, and wondered whether it enables them to "fly" in water. According to the wiki, maybe??
Back on the ground we strolled past a pond and spotted this more traditional waterbird at a distance, thinking it to be a goose. Looking at my long zoom pic now, that doesn't seem to be the case. I realized today that Edhat is a great repository of avian info. Anyone know what it is?
