Loon at Crystal Lake
4/19/07 - Observed a Common Loon in full breeding plumage on Crystal Lake. I have been a casual bird-watcher in Newton for many years, and have not observed this species in the City before. According to the Birds of Massachusetts (Veit & Petersen, 1993), this species is an uncommon migrant inland (common coastal migrant).
