This photo showing a Maine loon on her nest was taken from a kayak and submitted by Beanie Jamieson of Millinocket while cruising on a lake in Central Maine. The haunting call of a loon at night across any lake is unlike any other sound and certainly memorable.
If a trip to Maine and the joy of watching this mysterious bird is not in your budget, consider visiting the Maine Loon Webcam from the BioDiversity Research Institute at http://briloon.org/ed/looncam.htm to view loons. Links to related information may be viewed if no one is home.
Thanks for the nice closeup, Beanie!
