Where Can I Survey?

The Canadian Lakes Loon Survey can be conducted on any lake, within the breeding range of the Common Loon, that is large enough to support at least one nesting pair (about 10 ha or 25 acres in total surface area).

Common Loons are the most southern of Canada's 5 loon species (Common, Arctic, Pacific, Yellow-billed, Red-throated). They nest on lakes (and large rivers) throughout every province and territory. Loons have been displaced from some of the more developed areas of southern Canada. However, Canadian Lakes Loon Survey participation in these areas is still encouraged to confirm their present range (especially on lakes where loons are known to have been in the past).
