I have the urge to gather my chicks-and their chicks-in close to me.
Like the Red-Throated Loons do when faced with oil spills,
habitat degradation, pollution and fishing nets, gulls and Arctic Foxes.
But the RTLoon is well-adapted:
dense bones help it dive, set-back legs provide great propulsion,
long body & sharply pointed bill stream-line it to reduce the drag.
I need such to slip
This You Tube shows how fast the RTLoon can take off with those set back legs.
