Whale of a friend
Puzzle provided by Highlights
It is not an uncommon scene that a flock of marine birds follows the whale around. Have you ever wondered why these two species are often observed together?
In fact, marine birds are taking advantage of whale’s habit of feeding. The whales use their blowholes to send lots of fish upwards to the surface of the water and then rise to feast on the fish. Meanwhile, seabirds are trying to grab the fish that are left on the sea surface. Both are fed and that is why they are happy to stay together!
(A ‘whale of a friend’ is a very kind, caring and understanding friend. You’d be blessed if you have one!)
