Common Loon





There is nothing common about the loon. Loons dive up to 200 feet and they can stay underwater up to 10 minutes. In flight, they can reach speeds of up to 80 mph which is amazing for a 10 lbs bird. Couples mate for life and they return year after year to the same nesting ground. They can live 20 years or more.




The song of the loon is simply mesmerizing when you hear it early in the morning riding on a foggy lake! Such a beautiful and mystical bird and here is a capture of my privileged moments with these mesmeric creatures.
