The Common Loon is a large aquatic bird that can be found in North America and parts of Europe. They live in freshwater habitats, such as lakes, rivers, and ponds. They are easily identifiable by their black and white plumage, and their characteristic "yodel" call.
Common Loons are excellent swimmers and divers, and they use their powerful wings to propel themselves underwater. They feed on a variety of prey items, including fish, crustaceans, and insects.
Female Common Loons lay two eggs at a time, and both parents help to care for the young chicks. Chicks can swim and dive soon after they hatch, and they often follow their parents around while learning how to hunt for food.
