Loons by Rick Beaver
The beloved common loon is the official bird of the province of Ontario. Known for their haunting cries, their vocalizations include four distinct calls: wails, tremolos, hoots and yodels. Loons breed in forested lakes and large ponds across Ontario and feed on fish, crayfish, frogs, and other aquatic species. Ongoing threats facing loons across Canada include increased boating activity, water level fluctuations, contaminants, and habitat loss due to shoreline development. This great icon of the north is forecast to lose 56 percent of its current summer range and 75 percent of its current winter range by 2080 due to climate change.
