Here as an interesting and calming fact about loons. 

They hunt for fish in pairs. 

One hangs out on the surface while its partner dives down. These are long dives, and when the surface loon feels like it's time for the fishing loon to come back, they'll call out. 

That's how they find each other again, which can be tricky with winds and currents and whatnot. 

So that's why the loon's call is so loud and distinctive. And quite beautiful, I think.
