- Loons are water birds, only going ashore to mate and incubate eggs. Their legs are placed far back on their bodies. Therefore this allows efficient swimming but awkward movement on land.
- The Common Loon is flightless for a few weeks after molting all of its wing feathers at the same time in midwinter.
So next time I go to the lake I hope that I see both of them together again. I also hope that I will be able to capture a better picture of the two love birds. I have to be quick. So until then I will keep practicing my speediness at picture taking.
Thanks for stopping in and happy trails!
