And here’s a Great Northern Loon. Not necessarily my favorite bird, but I love the name. They are usually called Common Loons here, and Great Northern Divers across the pond, but some ornithologists came up with a compromise name for some fancy official bird list (the IOC World Bird List).
Birders love to make fun of this name, but it sounds like a pretty good description of me…
