The common Loon, like all divers, are fish-eating specialists, catching their prey underwater. Loons can dive as deep as 200 feet for a meal and are well-populated in both freshwater and saltwater environments around the globe. They need a long distance to gain momentum for take-off on water, and are clumsy on land. Loons' legs are set back on the torso, an ideal position for diving, but a less-than-ideal position for walking. Since the legs are set back, when Loons land on water, they skim along on their bellies first to slow down.
