Loons: symbols of the state's wildest country
By Kurt Krueger

THE SCRIBBLER’S concentra-tion was on floating bobbers when the loon surfaced within two feet of the outboard, a startling yet stunning sight with its black-and-white body gleaming in the sunlight as water ran from its well-oiled feathers.
It’s hard to appreciate the impressive size of the common loon — 2 feet in length with a 58-inch wingspan — until they are swimming so close that you can see the multicolored neck feathers change from green to blue and back again, depending on the angle of view.
