I don´t see much of this bird since I sold my kayak. But this day I had them right in front of me. I can´t remember seeing this behaviour of the juvenile bird. Going so low in the water when begging. 

In the first image I think the eyes looks weird. But maybe they have a protective lens to protect the eyes when diving?

  1. Härliga bilder! Jag stod länge och tittade på dem igår på kvällen. Ungarna var väldigt högljudda när de tiggde.

  7. Lovely pictures. The juveniles always look so strange with their stripy heads.
