Winter on the ocean shores and breed in northern lakes of Canada and the US. The call of the loon has become a symbol of the cry of the wilderness. On the loon survey that I participate in every summer, there are very few successful breedings in our area now:(
Even though these are 2 different individuals, I put them in the same spotting to show the spectacular breeding plumage in #1 and the partly molted winter plumage in #2. Hard to believe that #2 is going to look like #1 in a short time!
