Range of the Common Loon

Loons are on the ocean this month, molting their flight feathers which will carry them through spring migration back to their breeding lakes and then back to the ocean next fall. They're eating salt water fish, and drinking rain water and even a little salt water--they get rid of the salt through glands near their nostrils.
