Loon Sighting

We were so lucky to be staying in a camp area where we saw these beauties. The hubby took these shots with this Android cell phone. It did pretty good. This was the first time we caught them in the day time and with a camera. Usually we did listen to them during the evening hours. So pretty. We did visit the Loon Preservation there on Lee Mill Road. So fun to learn a bit more about the amazing bird the loon. So amazing how in the winter they have different colored feathers and only gain the black and white coloring during the mating season. They do a lot of separate traveling but then hooked back up in the warmer months to have young ones. 

Have you ever been super lucky to see one in person?

I know we were camping previously in North Carolina, New York, Minnesota and did hear them, not sure we ever saw them ...the sound is so peaceful.  I think I can honestly say one of my most favorite sounds ever. Connect with nature, feel calmer, more serene. JUST PERFECT. Thank You, for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Beth ( ;

The loons are iconic, indeed.
We have a few doing flyovers recently, as they test their wings.

I don't remember seeing them! But hearing is so sweet. I kind of don't like it when movies throw in Loon calls to designate that it's nighttime. Very strange just out of nowhere.

The Loon is such a beautiful bird and has an unforgettable call. We usually have several at our local lake in spring.
