Information about the Common Loon:
The Common Loon - called the Great Northern Loon outside of North America and the Great Northern Diver in Eurasia - is a large member of the family Gaviidae which are aquatic birds native to lake, streams, oceans and marshes of North America and Eurasia. There are only five species of this family. On average these birds grow to be about 32 inches long (81 centimeters) with a wingspan of 54 inches (136 centimeters) weighing roughly 9 pounds (4.1 kilograms.) Common Loons are found throughout much of North America from around the Canadian/American border northwards. These birds spend almost their entire lives in and on the water, coming ashore only to mate and incubate their eggs in nests, which are made on the ground. It is the state bird of Minnesota.
