Common Loon in Flight

Jordan Lake. Loons and grebes really do not like to fly. I was delighted this morning when this common loon flew into sight. Note his legs…they are long and begin right under his tail … great for swimming underwater but means the loon can’t stand up and walk so he avoids being on land.

  1. Interesting! So mostly they’re swimming or flying………you’ve given us a glimpse of a bird I’m not so likely to see…..a treat! Helen
