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.
