For anyone familiar with cottage country, the call of the common loon is as much a part of the experience as are the lakes and trees. The loon is a regular feature of the North American wilderness and a much-celebrated Canadian personification.

Perhaps the loon’s most distinguishing feature is its yodeling, hooting, wailing, and tremolo calls. Found in every Canadian province and territory, the loon is truly Canadian.
