Gavia immer (Himbrimi)

There are not many birds of the species "Gavia immer" in Iceland, maybe a couple hundred pairs, and this is a sensitive type. Often gets the trout nets and sometimes shot. In winter, the gaps have been cut when the oil spill have been in the sea. They lay only two eggs is common to only one pup survives. This bird was seen in the village recently. The bird is in winter clothing, but the summer clothes are however much more decorative.

A beautiful bird, thank you. We must, yes, help our wildness.
