One bird in the hand 3 5, 11:54pm

You're not the only ones. :P

One of our most iconic birds in Canada, we somehow decided to call the "Loon" ( They're very pretty waterfowl and have a unique call). We've had them on our $1 coin since we first retired the paper $1 bill (which is how those coins started being called "loonies").

For those who might not be up on their more obscure English terms, a "loon" also means a crazy person; short for "lunatic".
I GUESS it does make weird noises at night, but still... >.>
