Common Loon-Love the call of the loon!

Common Loons are famous for their eerie, beautiful calls. Among these are the tremolo, a wavering call given when a loon is alarmed or to announce its presence at a lake.

Loons carry their babies on their backs like this. Baby loons can swim and dive right away, but they often ride on a parent’s back during their first two weeks while they get stronger and avoid predators. Photo by Jim Block
