Common Loon
Nature Notes

Common Loon

This large waterbird is a majestic sight when spotted gracefully gliding in Long Island Sound in winter. Can you imagine a winter in which this species did not return to Connecticut? It’s possible if we do not work to maintain the fish populations that it relies on through the Magnuson-Stevens Act (MSA)—an important piece of legislation that is currently under threat.
