Did you know... 

Gavia immer is commonly known as the Common Loon.  Loons are aquatic birds that somewhat resemble ducks but they have sharp pointed beaks.  If you've ever been camping in Canada or the Northern United States, you may have heard their yodel-like calls.  Usually during twilight, but also at three in the morning !, one loon calls from a lake and another responds.  It's a beautiful sing-song you'll never forget.

Range:  Remote freshwater lakes of northern U.S. and Canada.
Class:  Aves
Order:  Gaviiformes

 

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology has a great site 
where you can hear what various birds sound like.  (Linked with permission)

Male and female loons look identical.  They are excellent swimmers and divers.  If you watch a loon dive for fish, it submerges in one part of the lake and emerges quite a distance away, having swum far underwater looking for food.

Males are the ones who select the location of the nest which is built close to the water’s edge.  A common misunderstanding is that loons mate for life.  During its almost 30-year life span, loons can have many mates.

Watching a loon take flight is a wonderful sight.  They are heavy birds and it takes considerable effort for them to take wing.  They skim along the water “running” and make an unmistakable flapping noise on the water with their wings.  It seems like ages before they lift into the air.  I’ve spent many a lovely afternoon watching young loons about 11 – 12 weeks old try to get lift to fly.

The fight for lakes and territory is great and often loons are displaced by their own chicks from the previous year.

Beautiful Birds

 

 

 

 


"The reason birds can fly 
and we can't 
is simply because 
they have perfect faith, 
for to have faith 
is to have wings."
