While out with some visitors this morning, we saw this common loon pop up out of the water. Loons, like many other birds will often stop over along the Upper Delaware while migrating. This loon, sporting its winter plumage appears to be looking for its mate. #upperdelaware #findyourpark #Lackawaxen #commonloons #yearofthebird
It is conceivable to think that the Common Loon got the name from it’s tremolo call or “crazy laugh”, but according to some, the name was born due to the way they walk. Their legs are located far to the rear on their body and they walk clumsily on land. However, the position of their legs also makes them very powerful swimmers. #bird #birds #birders #birds 🐦 #birding #birdsofinstagram #birdextreme #birdstagram #birdwatching #birdfreaks #birdgang #birdlover #birdphotography #naturephotography #naturelove #natureza #natureshots #naturepic #naturelover #naturelovers #naturegram #naturehippys #your_best_birds #bird_illife #okbirds #commonloons #loon

Common Loons have returned to the ocean 🌊 for the winter, which remains largely ice free for the birds to catch fish. I spotted several off the Sandy Hook peninsula a few days ago, mostly likely they just migrated from breeding sites in the Adirondacks which gets winter early. #nyharbornature #nyharbor #commonloons #njbirding #njbirds #sandyhook #gatewaynationalrecreationarea

Another decent weekend of birding. Nothing too exciting besides the #northerngoshawk and #redthroatedloon on Friday. On Saturday, I saw 7 species of gulls (#bonapartesgulls #laughinggull #franklinsgulls #ringbilledgulls #herringgulls #lesserblackbackedgulls and an #icelandgull ) and 12 shorebirds (too many to tag) plus my first big push of #commonloons of the fall (16!). Sunday saw many finches around the golf course including 1 #redcrossbill (only my 2nd for the county) and many flocks of #purplefinches and #pinesiskins with 24 degrees to start off the day! Hopefully some more good birds next weekend!!!

The male Common Loon defines his territory using his yodeling call. They will also perform a territorial display by lifting their body upright on the water and vigorously flapping their wings. Fisherman and canoeists who get too close may witness this display, along with a defensive tremolo call as the loon swims away. #bird #birds #birders #birds 🐦 #birding #birdsofinstagram #birdextreme #birdstagram #birdwatching #birdfreaks #birdgang #birdlover #birdphotography #naturephotography #naturelove #natureza #natureshots #naturepic #naturelover #naturelovers #naturegram #naturehippys #your_best_birds #bird_illife #okbirds #commonloons #loon
After sundown, you can hear the classic eerie chorus of the Common Loon across the lakes in the northern wilderness. Loons have four distinct calls that they use to communicate; the wail, the yodel, the hoot and the tremolo or ‘crazy laugh’. Writer John McPhee described the tremolo as “the laugh of the deeply insane” and it may also be how they got their name. Loons are a great indicator of water quality and require clean clear water with large populations of small fish. They can be harmed by pollution like mercury from coal burning as it can build up in lakes through rainfall. This has led to poor Loon reproduction in Canada, New England and Wisconsin. However, their population has rebounded in New England thanks to conservation and restoration efforts. #bird #birds #birders #birds 🐦 #birding #birdsofinstagram #birdextreme #birdstagram #birdwatching #birdfreaks #birdgang #birdlover #birdphotography #naturephotography #naturelove #natureza #natureshots #naturepic #naturelover #naturelovers #naturegram #naturehippys #your_best_birds #bird_illife #okbirds #commonloons #loon
This is a common Loon. Loons are swimming and diving birds. They have very distinctive bodies: long and low-slung with spear-like beaks and blood-red eyes. In addition to their unusual bodies, they have an eerie, haunting call that some consider a characteristic sound of early summer. Common loons are the most widespread and well-known species of loon in North America. There are four other species: red-throated loon, Pacific loon, Arctic loon and yellow-billed loon.  #birds #commonloons #loons #aquatiquebirds #animals

Shake it off
Capturing the beauty of nature is the inspiration for our recordings.  For many years #Glenn Hubert has been setting out his microphones to record pristine wilderness environments.  As time passes by and human development expands, these areas are becoming more difficult to find.  So, we're even more inspired to seek out and record the purest wilderness habitats in Ontario.  Pictured here are two of our most popular albums, "Loons of Algonquin" and "Wolves of Algonquin". both recorded in the back country area of Algonquin Provincial Park, east of Kearney, Ontario, Canada.  You can preview and purchase these and more at www.gmhcafestore.ca #algonquinprovincialpark , #algonquinwolfhowl , #algonquinloons , #commonloons , #wildernessrecordings , #socialseptember17 #howlingthunderproductions , #maureenhubert

#loons have one of the most distinct calls of any bird. How many Canadians don't have a memory of the lonely notes of a common loon calling out across a lake on a summer evening? #commonloons #canadianwildlife #birdingpics #nwt #yzf #northwestterritories #yellowknife #birdsong #summernights #collectivememories #birdersofinstagram
I absolutely love this photo of a loon family on Sharbot Lake. #sharbotlake #ontario #canada150 #loons #commonloons #loonfamily
Only a few days old, this common loon chick is on the back of one parent while being fed by the other. Soon it will be feeding on its own. What a beautiful sight on this glorious early morning on the lake.  Photographed with the Nikon D500 and 200-500mm.  #loons #commonloons #sharbotlake #Ontario #Canada #canada150 #tender #precious #beautiful #nikoncanada #canadiangeographic
