As far as Maine staples go the loon is definitely one of them, especially here in Center Lovell. All summer the loons call and fill the night air with their beautiful calls, our local market even sells stickers of Kezar loons! What many people don't know is that loons actually migrate every fall before winter hits, depending on what part of the country they're in the migration varies. Here in Maine the inland loons migrate to the coast every winter to feed in the Atlantic ocean and in salt marshes. Young loons who have no reached maturity migrate to the coast and stay there until they are mature, when they then return inland. Loon mates migrate separately to the coast but find each other again in the spring.
