Known by its yellow dagger-shaped beak, red eyes, and intricate black and white plumage, the Yellow-billed Loon is often found in the icy waters of cold, arctic habitats. To protect its extremities from the frigid water, the yellow-billed loon tucks one webbed foot under its wing, and alternates between feet periodically. It looks odd, but anyone who has ever dipped bare feet into icy water will relate.
