Awesome Common Eider Video

Found this through the cool Lab of Ornithology website redesign blog (Round Robin). This is footage taken by Joel P. Heath, Ph.D. at Belcher Islands, Nunavut.

Common Eider we found in Rhode Island above the water… click the link below to see what they look like underwater!

The video shows a Common Eider diving and feasting on mussel-urchin beds. The best part is the last part when the bird resurfaces!
