To me, the common loon is a typical figure of Northern Ontario.
Their beautifully eerie calls make my heart skip a beat and are so pleasing to the ears.
I have had the opportunity to rescue a loon that was trapped on a small body of water, it took the efforts of many, but we were able to capture the loon, get it checked out medically and put it back in a large body of water. At the release the loon started calling, almost as a thanks, and it made me feel amazing and reminded me of how awesome my job is 🙂
PS- I know I haven’t posted anything in a while, I will try to do better.
Hope you enjoy
