Preen

A common loon in the seaside fishing community of Westport. One of the earliest structures in Westport was the Westport Lighthouse dedicated in 1898.

Loons are commonly seen as loners. They are migratory, diving birds, and apparently acquired their name from the way they tend to walk when on land, with an unsteady gait because of the position of their legs toward the back of the body.
