This week's featured t-shirt design is our Birdorable Common Loon. Loons are currently migrating north and passing through northern Illinois, where we live. This time of year, local bird clubs organize "Looney trips" where birders drive from lake to lake to spot these beautiful birds. Have you seen a Loon this year?
We have added the Common Loon (a.k.a. Great Northern Diver) to Birdorable, which has recently been one of the most requested birds. These amazing birds with a wingspan of up to 5 feet can dive as deep as 200 feet when hunting for fish. They breed in Canada, parts of the northern United States, Greenland and there is a small population on Iceland. It is the state bird of Minnesota and appears on the back of a Canadian one dollar coin, which is known as a "loonie".
