[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Common Loon in breeding plumage. Many come in early spring before moving to local lakes to raise young. Some winter over in their drabber plumage, in the area as there is always open water at the reversing falls. I see them eating mostly cusk eels and they sometimes come up with sculpin.
