Monday's Riddle: A Fowl Lament...

Hello, Riddlers! Can you guess our theme this week? They look like magical creatures and sing a haunted tune. ; ) ~ F

As dusk settles on a northern lake, hear the cries of fowl heart break. Ruby-eyed sailors, paired to match, dive in deep for the evening catch. Carrying on, they swim away, a crazy call made at the end of the day. 

What am I referring to? Stop by Wednesday for the answer

I gave you a clue!

  3. I'm going with the loon. I know they have a mournful cry, however I don't know if their eyes are red.

  5. At first I was thinking of a raven or crow, but seeing as these are lake birds it seems like I'll go with others guess of a loon.

  9. I was going to say hawks, but their eyes aren't ruby colored. So I'm going with the group and saying it's loons.

  11. I'm not sure a bird would be described as a fowl, so maybe a duck, Mallard or Guineafowl? Not really sure.

  16. Are you doing a Canadian theme, eh? It does seem like the loon, of which I'm most familiar with. Yes, thank you for such a fowl post!
