The Common Loon - The Bird

The 'common loon' has been seen on the Cape this winter, along the shore and, occasionally, a distance off-shore. Although the state bird of Minnesota, this bird often 'winters' on the Cape. Check out the recent activity on the Wellfleet Audubon blog. Did you know (who knew?) that the loon can dive up to 200 ft in search of food?
