Acclaimed wildlife photographer, Wayne Lynch, focuses on the five species of loons - the red-throated loon, the look-alike Pacific and Arctic loons, the familiar neck-laced common loon and the yellow-billed loon, the largest and rarest member of the family. While the common loon has been studied more than the other four species combined, this book will give a wider scope and reach for all five species.
A perfect book for those who live in loon country and want a better understanding of the birds with which they live as well as for those who visit loon country and are eager to interpret their wilderness experience. The book is also for those who may never see a loon but who nonetheless want these birds to survive because they unfailingly fuel the human imagination and spirit.
With an exceptional ability to write for both adults and children, Wayne Lynch has authored more than fifty highly acclaimed natural history books, including The Great Northern Kingdom: Life in the Boreal Forest, Wild Birds Across the Prairies, Penguins of the World, Mountain Bears, Bear: Monarchs of the Northern Wilderness, and A is for Arctic: Natural Wonders of a Polar World. Lynch is a Fellow of the internationally recognized Explorers Club and Fellow of the Arctic Institute of North America. He lives in Calgary with his wife of forty-five years, Aubrey Lang.
