Loons are divers found in North America and Eurasia.  These aquatic birds are members of the Gaviidae family. They are about the size of a duck or small goose.  Both males and females sport identical plumage.

Even though some of my birds are not portfolio worthy I continue to keep them for a reference record for me in my birding  journey.  It’s good to have something to refer back to for comparison and identification.
