Winter Loon

January 24, 2024

Loons, the iconic bird of northern summer lakes, winter along the Mid-Atlantic coast, changing their fresh water fish diet to salt water species.  Their winter plumage is very different from their far more striking summer markings.   I happened to catch this one as it was feeding, coming up for a breath of air for a few seconds then back down to find the next bite.

Uh Oh
