This would be a great addition to "I am Canadian - Wildlife" I just created a new mission.

Thanks Williefromwi - looking at your wonderful photos now.

The scientific name for the Great Northern Loon ( common loon as it is often called ) is Gavia immer. It would be wonderful if you could add this to your spotting. I will provide a link to a spotting of mine of this same bird if you wish to add any additional information from mine or my links.
