One possible reason for the red eyes of the loon is that the color helps them to see underwater, filtering out blue and green light. It is also thought that the brilliant red color helps them to attract other loons. Since the summer coincides with their mating season. #commonloons #nhloons #audubonsociety #nikonD500 #nikonnofilter #AudubonTakeover
Is a group of Loons called an asylum? Not a great picture, but I was so happy to get eleven Loons in one picture! #commonloons #mnstatebird #loonsofinstagram #loonconservation #mnwildlife #mnlakelife #mnsummer #mncabinlife #loveloons #mnexposure #exploreminnesota #upnorth #loonasylum #elevenloons
Seek and ye shall find .. wandered over to Joe's Pond in West Danville and were rewarded with a visit with a pair of loons, including this one who surfaced close to my starboard, and then later a view from afar of a mother and young one .. . . #loon #loons #commonloon #commonloons #joespondvt #joespond #westdanvillevt #birdwatchinginakayak #birdwatching #kayakingwithloons

"Early Morning Stretch" by Diane Weiler "I headed west from Ontario to photograph the birds in this area of BC. I was blessed with many magical moments with red necked grebes, horned grebes, bonapart gulls, ruddy ducks, virginia rails, great grey owls and more. Many with their young. But this morning, during the golden hour, a common loon and her chick swam into the beautiful light. The chick had been asleep on mom's back, but woke and proceeded to have an early morning stretch, much to my delight!" #wildlifephotooftheday #dailywildlifephoto #photooftheday #naturalhabitatadventures #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #wildlifephoto #instagood #wildlifephotographer #wildlife #naturephotographer #commonloon #loon #loons #britishcolumbia #commonloons

2 Common Loons came flying into this pond and landed about 10 ft away and started calling for their chicks.
A Momma w/her two day old chics. My wife and I had a great trip up to see this new family.
SLOW DOWN!!! This loon chick was in a boat collison on a reservoir in southern N.H. The collision left him with a broken right leg and some gashes on his head. It is your right to enjoy the lake as a boater, but it is also your duty to be vigilant and slow down when loons are in the vacinity. Chicks can be especially vulnerable! He will be well taken care of at Wings of the Dawn! Also please keep away from active loon nests and do not use lead fishing tackle! #loons #commonloons #vet #veterinarymedicine #wildliferehab #wildliferehabilitation #wingsofthedawn #conservation #wildliferehabvolunteer #lakelife #boatlife #newhampshire #summer #newhampshirelife #waterskiing #jetski #personalwatercraft #nature #wildlifephotography

Sometimes when you like an animal so much you take several thousand pictures of it, one of those pictures happens to catch the sunset reflecting off the feathers in a way you’ve never noticed with your naked eye & later you see the picture on your computer screen & it instantly becomes your new favorite picture you’ve ever taken & you just know that you need a huge print on your wall, probably on metal or glass or something that will really bring out the vibrance. The good news for you is that this can be yours too from alaskankayak.com ➡️ store ➡️ wildlife encounters. There are other pictures there if loons aren’t your thing. But loons are my thing, so I’m ordering this one
This family of Loons hung out with us all week. #wisconsinsummer #wisconsinloons #wisconsinwildlife #wisconsinvacation #commonloons

“What lies in front of you and what lies behind you, pales in comparison to what lies inside you.” -RWE. Sometimes you need a really freaking great friend to realize just how awesome you are; that our past and futures do not necessarily define us. And what a blessing it is to have people in our lives like this. #commonloons #swipeleftforbae
They have hatched!!!! Admittedly poor quality photo, but it was so fun to see the 2 loon chicks on momma’s back. #feelingfortunate #commonloons #uncommon #loonchicks #ridinginstyle #okanogancounty
Common Loons (Gavia immer) in breeding plumage. Fun fact: Loons are great swimmers, but they are also known for moving fast in the air. Migrating loons have been clocked flying at speeds more than 112 kph (70 mph). 2018-06-07 #commonloon #commonloons #loons #Gaviaimmer #prairiebirds #manitobabirds #exploremb #manitobawildlife #wetlands #ridingnp #ridingmountainnationalpark #ridingmountain #rmnp #wildlifephotography #birdphotography #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeseekers #birdwatching #birdland #birdlife #birdsofinstagram #birding #birder #birdnerd #birdfacts #funfacts #nikonp900 #p900
I can never get tired of spending time with and photographing loons on the lake.  Love hearing their haunting call too.  #commonloons #loons #lake #cottagecountry #sharbotlake #ontario #canada #canadianwildlife #bird #wildlife #nature #earth #raw #beauty #beautiful #chicks #family #peaceful #amazing #nikon

Common Loon and Chick.
We heard the call of the loons this weekend on the lake!!! What a beautiful sound. I can't wait to get into my kayak and photograph them again this year! Hopefully we have a nest near us again.

Common loons were spotted at the Jamestown Marina at #PymatuningStatePark this week. Pymatuning Reservoir is a haven for #birdwatchers throughout the year. During spring migration, #commonloons are just one of the park’s interesting guests! #SpringInPA #GetOutdoorsPA #PAStateParks #springmigration #birdwatching

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🌊🌲 📸: Somerset Soil and Water Conservation District
From my time of being a very young man, which carries on still. I have two things that envision the Northwoods to me. One is the Muskie which I fished for many years, caught and released plenty. The other is the loon! More than any other bird, including the Eagle, its haunting call. Seeing them silently gliding across the lake lends to the mystique of the Northwoods. OnEarth day please keep in mind the silent guardians of our wilds! #capturededication #lancelemke #imagesbylemke #wildlifeonearth #wildlifephotography #animalelite #animal_captures #wildlifelovers #wildlifephoto #loon #commonloons #commonloon Bird #your_best _birds #birds #animal_sultans #animals_captures #natgeowild #animal_fanatics #wildlifeplanet #earthfocus #wildlifeaddicts #animals_in_world #wildlifeperfection #natgeowildlife #natgeo #splendid_animals #natgeohub #natgeopl #your_best_birds #earthday

Molting into beautiful breeding plumage is not always pretty, as seen a Common Loon along the Jersey Shore. Hang in there! Soon you will be ready to fly up north to mate, breed and raise a family. #needtobreed #commonloons #commonloon #loon #waterbirds #molting #plumage #breedingseason #feathers #messyfeathers #savecoastalwildlife #nyharbornature #coastalbirding #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #naturelovers #nature_good #nature_lovers #optoutside #birdielicious #birdphotography

Loons have legs at the far rear of the body that makes them very clumsy walkers, but powerful swimmers. Unlike other birds, they have solid bones that makes them less buoyant, but better at diving. It’s also possible that this is why it takes them so long to lift off. They need about 30 yards of runway as they run across the water to gain enough speed to take flight. #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
Woke up covered in hives, but refused to let this glorious afternoon go to waste. I saw so many beautiful species and forgot about my itchy troubles, nature > hydrocortisone. • • • • • #makeyourownmedicine #birdnerd #mamaocean #solitude #healing #eagles #brants #commonloons #pacificloons #hornedgrebes #longtailducks #commongoldeneyes #barrowsgoldeneyes #blackturnstones #spottedtowhees #pacificwrens #blackcappedchickadees #juncos
