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!
Loons have a very unusual calls. Once you hear them, you will never forget them.
What do these sounds make you think of? You can tell me below.
