Yellow-billed loon video

This video by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA says about itself:

The Yellow-billed Loon is the largest and most spectacular of the world’s five loon species. It breeds around the globe in arctic and sub-arctic tundra lakes and is the northern counterpart to the Common Loon.

Watch this rare video shot by The Lab’s Gerrit Vyn of a mated pair calling and foraging just after arriving on the partially frozen breeding grounds in Chukotka, Russia.

    • Hi Dr Bill, thanks for reacting!

      This video is on the yellow-billed loon, an Arctic species, coming further south only in winter. Aren’t you confusing it with the related species common loon, nesting in Minnesota and elsehere?
