    Do Loons migrate through New Jersey? If so, what lakes are traditional stop over points for them. Do they make Loon calls as they do in the North woods?

    • Yes, Common Loons migrate through New Jersey in Spring and Fall. Any large lake or reservoir in northern New Jersey may have them pass through or linger in varying numbers. Hearing them call is on the rare side but you do hear them occasionally. Large numbers of Common Loons, along with Red-throated Loons, winter off of the coast of New Jersey.
