Loons have long, pointed bills. They dive to feed and usually swallow fish underwater.|
The Common Loon is usually found in coastal areas but also on lakes and ponds in scattered inland areas.
Red-throated and Pacific Loons are rare visitors to the state, most often seen in north Florida during fall and winter.
