Common Loon

Gavia immer

The Common Loon breeds over most of Canada and Alaska. They spend winters in coastal regions of much of North America. Perhaps no other bird symbolizes the far north than the Common Loon. Anyone who has ever heard their haunting yodel call is not likely to forget it. Hollywood loves it so much they use it often in background sound effects.
