Just how long can a loon hold its breath under water? Longer than I thought, that’s for sure!
The legend of the underwater loon goes like this. I was sitting on the dock enjoying the view at the end of a long day of fishing, catching salamanders, and swimming when a loon popped up out of nowhere barely twenty feet from me. I have no idea where it came from, nor did it answer when I asked. I whipped out my phone and snapped a blurry picture just before it dove back underwater to hang with the moose.
