Hi guys --

We stumbled upon this juvenile gannet on the beach today. He was sitting there and did not move when approached. He didn't seem injured but it was certainly odd behavior. Any thoughts/seen this before?

I'm thinking that's a Loon. I have seen them beach themselves for a time and then head back out into the ocean. They are very clumsy on land and often will just sit there if you approach them.

Thanks, Tim. Good call on the loon, I think you may be right. Definitely the behavior you describe is what I saw. I'll see if he is there in the morning.
