Common Loon, July 24, 2019

ABC Wednesday, Wild Bird Wednesday, and My Corner of the World
C is for the Common Loon - a North American water bird

Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, July 9, 2019
Common Loon, Gavia immer, in its non-breeding (or juvenile) plumage. Common Loons spend most of their life in the water, coming ashore only to nest. They are expert swimmers and divers, catching fish and swallowing them while still underwater. Migratory birds, they breed in Canada and the most northern parts of the United States. In the Winter they gather along the North American coasts from Canada to Mexico. And the Common Loon has been seen in Greenland, Iceland, and the extreme northern part of Europe.

Have a wonderful day!
