Common Loon and Chicks

The wonderful call of the Loon is etched in so many of our memories.  A Loon spends almost it's entire life on water and this drawing depicts the occasion when it will venture onto land, to lay and incubate it's eggs.  Shortly after the chicks hatch the Loon will take to the water and the chicks will be carried on it's back.
