A teaser photo of an adult Common Loon coming into the breeding plumage:

Freshly caught crab was an added bonus 🙂

If you want to see a Common Loon in breeding plumage, in New Jersey, better hurry. They will soon fly North with a search for breeding grounds. This photograph was taken in Point Pleasant but I’m sure Barnegat Light and other coastal hot spots host these beautiful diving birds.

Hopefully, I will post more photographs next week…
