#2-Loon Call

Is That a Loon I Hear?

Loons are waterbirds, like ducks. Their closest relatives are (you’ll be surprised…penguins!) There are lots of loons in Maine, and there always seems to be a pair on Bufflehead Lake every summer.

The loon is the national bird of Canada. They put pictures of them on their stamps and on their one-dollar coins, which they call loonies!
