To keep things some what organized I have decided to follow the order of the Sibley Guide to Birds by David Allen Sibley, since most birders I know have this field guide. The first grouping in the Sibley book are loons. Unfortunately the only species of loon that I currently have photographed is the common loon.
All three of these shots where taken at Crex Meadows in Wisconsin. Crex is the best place that I have found for photographing common loons. In early spring the loons come through on there way north and often stop over to spend a little time at Crex. The loons are often fishing in the waters right off of Main Dike Road and you are able to get good looks from inside the car. Most years a pair or two decide to stay and nest in the park. When they are very young the adults usually keep the chicks in the middle of the larger lakes so that they can avoid the land based predators. However as the chicks grow and begin to learn how to fly there are opportunities to get closer shots. The last photo is an immature that was close to fledging.
