All Dressed Up

Tuesday, April 23, 2019,

This is a Common Loon in all it’s breeding plumage glory. This is one beautiful bird. Loons often winter here on Long Island before heading north to breed and raise families. Unfortunately, their winter plumage is very plain. It’s not until Spring that they get that black and white checked body and neck or that wonderful green cummerbund on the lower part of the neck. This particular bird is one of the final holdouts left here on the Island. I imagine he’ll be gone by next week or even sooner but in the meantime, it is a real treat to see such a  magnificent bird in the harbor. JK

  1. Yes, the Loon is impressive. I had a feeling that he (or she) would not disappoint. JK.

  2. I had a loon clock once that would make that sound they make. I LOVE loons! Okay, I’ll wait a little longer for the crow under the circumstances. 😉

  3. I can promise you more Loonage easier than a crow, but I will try to score a crow for you. JK.
