Loons in Winter

My first Winter in Boston – although it is cold – birding in Boston Harbor is excellent! This evening I watched two loons in winter plumage feeding next to Central Wharf by the New England Aquarium. I stood on the packed snow and ice watching the loons as the light faded.  They came close to me – intent on diving for food.  They both found crabs and other invertebrates. Loons are beautiful birds even in winter plumage. I think these two were Common Loons.  It was a delight to see these elegant birds so close to the aquarium.
