As the photographer asks in his introduction: What is it about the presence of loons that excites us? Why is it that the voice of a loon makes one yearn to see it up close? This blend of useful, informative text and lovely closeups of birds that symbolize the North woods helps answer these questions. Loons are birds that prefer solitude, so learning about them can prove difficult for most people. The author describes how to watch loons without interfering in their lives, and provides very understandable descriptions of what the observed postures and calls mean. Six chapters on topics such as finding loons, their family life, and their conservation are full of good, basic information about the lives of this most ancient lineage of birds, and one chapter gives useful tips on photographing them. The color photographs are beautiful in their own right and illustrate well the behaviors described in the text. Overall, a very nice book, recommended for libraries with large collections on birds (and all North woods libraries!). Nancy Bent
