If you have been searching for the greatest spot to spy a loon, you are going to want to bookmark this web page.

In response to a video we shared earlier this week of a group of 17 loons in Aroostook County, we asked our readers exactly where their favourite locations are in Maine to see and hear the stunning birds with a haunting contact.

We got responses in our comment section, Facebook and Twitter. We’ve shared them under, edited lightly for clarity.
