Loons are such beautiful birds, and the sound they make is truly one of the most beautiful things our ears could ever hope to hear.

How extremely lucky you are to have loons there. I'm jealous - only seen or heard one once in Alaska. I love your photo. Looks like he's going to a blacktie deal!

He IS beautiful, isn't he? I don't think I've ever seen one, not even in a bird sanctuary or zoo!

Now I'm going to have to look up a soundfile to hear one!
