The call of a loon coming from the lake at dusk is the sound of summers in Wisconsin, Michigan or Minnesota for many a Chicago vacationer. Watch this video to hear and see these beautiful birds being tracked from summer breeding grounds to winters along our south eastern coast.

That's a neat link I see loons all the time in April and early May here in central Ohio I saw one last weekend on the reservoir.

They'd dabble below water off and on and when the current brought them so far downstream they'd fly back upstream only to repeat their feeding behavior and flying back all over again.
