It was awesome to see the Northern Gannets flying high in the sky above Coast Guard Beach the other day. The Northern Gannet is a seabird and the largest of the Gannet Family.
“Adults are 32–43 inches long, weigh 4.9–7.9 lb and have a 65–71 inch wingspan. Adults are white with dark wingtips. Northern Gannets dive vertically into the sea at velocities of up to 62 mph.” Wow!
Very cool, don’t you think? Have you ever seen a Northern Gannet?
