When one thinks of the Canadian Shield, with its thousands of lakes, dotting the rugged rock and tree landscape, the Common loon stands out as a symbol and heart-warming aspect of  this region.  Its haunting calls, its ability to dive and swim hundreds of feet below the surface and its gorgeous plumage, all remind us of this most special place in Canada. This gallery contains photographs of the common loon and chicks located in northwestern Ontario, Canada.
