Every bird I see on this lake I name a loon. I’m not sure if they are loons, if they fly like loons, if they call like loons. I researched it. They might be cormorants, which are not as interesting.
A group of loons fly by me, just above the water, furiously. This is not the way cormorants behave, or it might be just as they behave.
What is true, and what I know, is really just what I perceive.
