Common Loon (genus Gavia)

In the spring and summer most common loons live on lakes and other waterways in Canada and the northern United States.  The summer habitat of Common Loons ranges from wooded lakes to tundra ponds. The lakes must be large enough for take-off and provide a high population of small fish.  Clear water is necessary so that they can see fish to prey on. As protection from predators, loons favor lakes with islands and coves.  A pair of loons and their offspring can eat about a half-ton of fish in 15 weeks.
