Common Loon

This bird is anything but common! I was visiting Kananaskis in the summer and was fortunate to see a female with two chicks and at sunset no less.

Their call reminds me of canoeing in Ontario as a kid, eerily echoing across the lake.

They certainly picked a gorgeous spot! This is Spillway Lake at the south end of the Smith Dorrien Trail.

This was my favourite shot of the female.
