About Loons

Loons are birds. They have a great ability in both swimming and diving. They have short bodies with spear-like beaks and blood-red eyes that set them apart. They have a unique call that happens frequently during the early summer.

In North America, the most abundant type of loon is the "Common Loon." However, in other parts of the world there is the red-throated, pacific, arctic, and yellow-billed loon.

The reason why the loon is selected for many books is because it represents the wildness and openness of the north. With many of us stuck in an increasingly urbanized culture, yearn for from the depths of our souls.
