HOW SEA BIRDS QUENCH THEIR THIRST. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 22 May 1903
HOW, SEA BIRDS QUENCH THEIR THIRST. The-. qiestion is often asked ,'+Whero' do sea birds obtain fresh water to slake their thirst ? 7" But it has never been satisfactorily an pwered until recently. An old skipper has told how he has seen these birds at sea, far front any land that could fturnlish them water, hovering arountld and under a storm-cloud, clattering like ducks on a hot day at a pond and drinking in the drops of rain as they fell. They will smellll a rain squall ia hundred miles distant, or even fui' ther off, and scud for it with almost inconceivable swiftness. HIow long birds can exist withiout water is only a mattier of conjectatre, but lprobably their powers of endur ing thirst are increased by habit, and possibly they go without water for many days, if not for several weeks.--"Great Thoughts."
