From landing on just-thawed lakes in spring to raise their chicks, until they migrate to ocean waters in the fall, loons enchant us with their haunting calls and black and white plumage.
Diving, swimming, fishing, raising their chicks are portrayed through Yvona Fast’s lyrical poems and Dr. Nina Schoch’s stunning photos.
Fun science facts accompany each poem and photo, providing scientific information about loon calls, diving abilities, fishing skills, and how they raise their chicks.
