Comments from my Readers & Friends

  1. the call, it reminds me of the werewolf … the laugh reminds me of when my sister tried to sound like a peacock. The common loon is very beautiful …. it is the one shown above

  2. Cheesie … why did the illustrator make Gorgeie look like a brainiac, witch is cool but … why?

  3. The first one sounds like a lunatic trying to sing, and the second sounds like a wolf, howling at a full moon.

  4. Hi!The loon in the picture is a common loon. There are many different types of loons. There is the common loon, the red throated loon, pacific loon,yellow billed loon, and the artic loon! The sound that it makes is just so pretty. 😉

    1. You know so much about birds! You are right. It is a common loon. Maybe you’ll become an ornithologist when you grow up.
