Birds of the Alphabet ~ Loon

Another bird to share with my series Birds of the Alphabet.

LOON

The photo above is of a Common Loon sitting on a nest. There are many types of Loons. I never knew the difference in all of these.

Loons are excellent swimmers, using their feet to propel themselves above and under water. However, since their feet are located far back on the body, loons have difficulty walking on land. 

Thus, loons avoid coming to land, except when nesting or severely injured.
