Nesting Loons

Filed under: Birds,Monadnock Region,Summer,Wildlife — Tags: , — Frank @ 1:00 PM

A couple of weeks ago, Joan and I discovered a loon nest on a body of water that has not supported a breeding pair for more that forty years*.

Yesterday, I got permission to cross the privately-held shore line and photograph the nest and its occupant.

* I am being a bit circumspect about the exact location in order to protect the nest site.

  1. Wow. What a great shot. So happy to hear about the establishment of this nesting site. Hopefully that means the pond is in better shape to support them. Any chicks yet?

    Looking forward to seeing the future ones on this.
