More Loons

We ended our two-day trip to Gray’s Harbor with a stop at Tokeland in hopes of seeing the Godwits that had been reported. Nary a one was spotted, but this Common Loon

swam right up next to me on the boardwalk and proceeded to show off.

Couldn’t figure out exactly what it was doing since there wasn’t another loon in sight

but I was more than happy to capture my second unusual sequence

in a single day.

What a great way to wish the loons bon voyage until they return from their breeding grounds next Fall/Winter.

    • I’ve only heard that call once or twice, and never on the Puget Sound or at the Ocean. Not sure what it signifies, but it’s thrilling to hear it live.
