Loon Survey

Canadian Lakes Loon Survey

From Lake of the Woods to Lake of the Prairies, and from Lake Manitoba to Manistikwan Lake, Common Loons can be found throughout Manitoba. But what is the status of Manitoba’s loons? How many pairs nest on each lake? How many pairs are able to rear young? Manitobans can help answer these questions and support lake and loon conservation through the Canadian Lakes Loon Survey.
