Lake Eaton | Common Loon | New York

Common Loons are not so common in my area.

Every once in a while a Common Loon will appear for a brief period of time in my area. But usually we don’t see them here.

However, if you want to have a better chance at seeing a Common Loon you don’t have to go too far to find them.

I am in New York near the Pennsylvania border, but I don’t even have to leave New York to look for Common Loons.

A five hour drive can get me to the Adirondack region of New York. There the likelihood of seeing a loon greatly increases.

On a camping trip to the Adirondacks I was able to see loons fairly regularly where I was camping. The campground featured a lake, Lake Eaton.

The Common Loons would often be out on Lake Eaton.

Even better than seeing the Common Loons is hearing them sing. It is one of the most magical bird songs. I hope some day you will get the chance to hear it if you haven’t already.
