[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Common Loon needs a very long distance to take off on a lake. As a consequence if the have babies and they are not strong enough to fly the distance the adults will abandon them and fly south without them.

Hello Trevor

The back-light and I am sure the far distance
of the bird was not at your side to get details
on the head but a lovely light came and shine-up
the beautiful plumage patterns of this Common Loon, TFS
