  1. We have loons that show up at our cabin up north in the early mornings. I love listening to their calls; it’s so mesmerizing

  2. Just went on a camping trip in the Adirondack mountains and we were sleeping next to a lake and in tent, everyone was asleep and it was like 3 in the morning and all of a sudden I just here WHOOOOAAAAAAAAOOOO!!!! Keep in mind I’ve never Heard a loon call or whatever, so basically I shit my pants the end👍

  3. We hear them at our camp in southern Maine. The first time I heard the loon's call was at the Boston YWCA camp in Denmark, ME. The camp ran several canoe trips every summer and I was on the Sebago Lake trip.

  4. Whenever I go to black duck Minnesota (where I am at the time of writing this), I always go outside on my dock and listen to the loons call. It's creepy but amazing.

  5. I’m at my summer home in New Hampshire and have become absolutely fascinated with these creatures. The sound is so spooky and I love it.

  6. Growing up fishing in northern Ontario hearing these birds on Red Lake and Reindeer Lake I’ll never forget those sounds absolutely beautiful

  7. I’m listening to this right now as I’m blessed to live on the water in Maine…it’s 6am. It’s a sound that touches your soul.

  8. I was fishing at a lake in far northern Wisconsin. I was fishing, and there were a couple Loons not far from where I was fishing. Not surprisingly, they were a ways ouf from where I was. I miss them a lot. Amazing creatures, Loons. When I first heard their call, I was just a kid. Was honestly shocked when I first heard it. I wasn't sure what it was at the time, looking back.

  9. Hearing one right now from the distance It's been going on for the past half hr. Sounds haunting and beautiful at the same time. One thing I love about being around the lake is hearing these beautiful creatures sing at night.
