I love the sound of a loon on a lake more than just about any other sound. I was devastated to learn that loons in the Adirondack park and elsewhere are dying due to lead poisoning from ingesting fishermen’s lead sinkers. Biologists are tracking the loon migration and have created this very cool maps of loon migrations in the Northeast (also a map of the Nevada loons of Walker Lake online soon).

A few years ago we adopted loons for friends and family in lieu of Christmas gifts. We plan on doing this again this year. You get a certificate and photo of your adopted loon to wrap up as a present.
