Are Canadians "Loony'?

Ok - that is not a fair question - but what I am referring to is our love for the bird - The Loon.

On our money, in all sorts of Canadian images etc, the Loon with it's mournful cry seems to have become a symbol of what the great outdoors and open spaces of our country mean to us.  We are proud of our heritage and the land in which we live and the love of the wildlife that inspire us or send a shiver up our spine on a late fall night at the lakeshore!

Here is another great image by First Nations artist Rick Beaver entitled "Quiet Solitude".
