I recently took my annual trip to northern New England in the hopes of seeing moose and few boreal bird species. The moose were scarce _ I saw a grand total of zero _ and Gray Jays were the only real boreal species of birds I saw. Nonetheless I did see plenty of Common Loons, which makes for a successful trip in my book. My latest For the Birds column addresses loons and their summer and winter plumage (and in-between plumage).
The full column may be seen here. 

Over the next several days I’ll post photos from the trip, which included stops in central Maine and northern New Hampshire.

  1. Thank you for your column the Loons. I am glad you had a nice trip too. I learned alot from your trip. I am increasingly finding myself taking greater interest in birds. I look at them now and listen more carefully to their singing. — Lisa, via Facebook
