The Great Northern Diver (LOON).

Since the 1970s the Loon population in the Basin/Harbour areas of Halifax has increased dramatically,probably as a result of the ban on DDT in the 60's.The Basin is home to several large 'famlies' which nest in the Birch Cove Lakes,marshlands areas adjacent to the Basin. A healthy population also nests on McNab's Island around the salt lagoons. Photo shot in the Basin Sept 21st 2009.
