Loon Gathering at Big East
“From my childhood, my joy was to explore the lakes in the Canadian northland. The spirit of those lakes was, and still is, the common loon. They sometimes assemble in quite large numbers before their southward flight. To millions of people, loons symbolize the clean, remote wilderness.
It is partly the familiar sight of the elegant silhouette, but mainly the haunting cry. Now, of course, lakes like this one are threatened by acid rain, the fish population is declining as the acidity rises. In time, there will be no food for the loons, and our lake will be dead. Let us hope that powerful forces will come to the rescue in time.” – Robert Bateman
