Common Loon Photos

Most of the Common Loons I've seen within the state have been in non-breeding plumage (first 2 photos).  All of the birds shown here in breeding plumage were taken out of state (Alaska, or Montana).

Click on the image or photo name below for higher-resolution photos.   Click here for the species description page for the Common Loon.
