Loon --(Gavia sp.) (36701 bytes)

Interested in College in Alaska?

Gavia sp.

When I first saw this bird it was preening, but by the time I got this close, it had started to dive (presumably to feed). It swam away from the corner of the harbor, periodically diving as it went.

Location: Crescent Harbor, Sitka, Alaska
