While showing a house yesterday I noticed a Loon sitting near the street. Knowing a bit about them I know that take a break and swim up on shore to rest and people on the beach think they are injured because they walk funny on land - hence the term "loony as a Loon". But I was 2 street west of the ocean - I also know they can't take off from land, only from water where they can run to lift off. A call to my friend Lou Browning to confirm they can't fly from a road was confirmed. He said throw a towel over it and you can pick it up - but he said it could poop on you.
When I went to see what I could do it was gone. I looked all over so I am hoping some good soul picked it up in that 15-20 min time frame.
