Loons need a long running start to get aloft, but are VERY strong fliers once airborn, and migrate long distances.

Here's a link to a beautiful (but BIG) picture of a loon on her nest. A Rare glimpse

And here's another loon call in .wav format (it takes a minute to download).

And another - loon call # 2.

And a third - loon call # 3.
