All About The Sea-dove
Goes far north in nesting season. Found in Illinois swamps, and as far
north as Greenland.
Small bird with entire upper parts almost black--under parts
white--wings tipped with white, bill black--feet pale red--toes webbed.
Food obtained from the waves--flies swiftly and dives well--walks on
land better than most water-birds.
Lays but two bluish-white eggs.
