Comments:
an epic battle between a Loon and a Flounder it caught. If the sightings are any indication, the loons are fishing for Flounder in water depths between 20 and 30 feet most of the time, sometimes going as deep as 50 feet. This battle lasted several minutes before the Loon was finally able to align the flounder and swallow it.
