  •  Loons (11+ / 0-)

    Common loons were a summer bird for me growing up - their calls and summer plumage a part of almost every vacation our family took.  I have to say that the birds I saw this winter in the Gulf don't seem like 'real' loons to me.

    Which leaves me in a bit of a conflict.  Probably my number one bird in North America that I want to see is Red-throated Loon.  I've been to the far north twice but failed to spot any both times.  I can't decide if I really want to see a wintering bird here in Florida or not...
