Loon Watch: Diving lessons.

Sam Guarnaccia describes Loon Diving Lesson

From Loon Ranger Lee (Lee Attix)

^This is an astute observation by Sam. Both male and female participate in chick rearing, and teaching diving and successful capturing of prey is obviously a key skill for survival. Since male and female look alike, it could have been either parent. Males are larger than females, and males are the only one who make the yodel call.
