This bird is designed to dive in water after fish, a spectacle to watch. It has binocular vision allowing it to move the eyes within their sockets, giving it a better way to view of fish in water by reducing angles of light reflection. In addition, it also has accurate depth perception. This image is of a life size female, one of the few species where the female is more colorful that the male. The etching is four plates, then hand colored.
