Check out Jem's paper on the effects of lead toxicosis on swans and loons! This was a research paper written for a class, and discusses how lead affects these species at both an individual and a population level. Lead toxicosis is an issue that not only affects swans and loons, but many other species, such as raptors, carnivorous mammals, songbirds, and other waterfowl. It is important for us to make the changes we can to help protect these animals! Keep it wild🌊🌲

Buckhorn Lake: While we were looking at Osprey we spotted al loon. Later we passed fairly close to one. I would not have thought a pontoon boat would be a great loon photography platform but you can lay down on the deck and open the door and get pretty low. The loon kept thier eye on us but didn't seem too concerned about us being near by.

Yes I am a day late @erinmarchesseault
but happy birthday! I’ve learned the importance of surrounding myself with individuals who will not only push themselves to be better, but their friends as well. Lucky enough to have not only survived but thrived with you during two of the best semesters ever. I hope 22 is the best year for you yet and you continue to grow and not only reach your goals, but crush them #commonloons
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.

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.

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
