Common Loon

Flapping the wings

A Common Loon in an uncommon situation. Loons frequently can be seen along the eastern coast where they migrate. It is a bit uncommon to see them on a suburban lake. This male has been here for about three weeks. He seams to be healthy i.e. fishing and moving around the lake. There has been some concern the lake is not long enough to provide a “runway” for him to take off. No one has reported observing any attempt by the loon to takeoff. Other extralimital bird species have visited the area and stayed for extended periods then, disappeared while no one was looking, perhaps the loon will, too.
