Leaving Soon


This week’s photo, taken April 18, 2015 from the rock jetty in Westport, WA, features a COMMON LOON bobbing on the surface of the Pacific Ocean. It probably has spent the winter here along the Washington coast. Now that it’s mid-April, and this loon has acquired its lovely breeding plumage, soon it will migrate north, most likely to a lake somewhere in Canada, where it will nest and raise its young.

  1. My Favorite bird. I made the Loon call my cell phone ringer. teh sound carries well 🙂 The call isn’t disruptive in Central Park, we don’t get them there. I see them upstate and off shore in the winter.
