Chick Vigil (Thursday Edition)

I know that today is Friday… but sometimes things get busy!!

Late Wednesday evening we had multiple reports of a long, loud territorial spat between two loons. Thus, we were a little apprehensive about what we would find when we headed out for a look early Thursday morning.

However, our fears were quickly put to rest as we observed all four loons (two adults and two chicks) on the main part of the lake to the east of the town beach. The birds were behaving normally… adults diving, chicks bobbing and fresh fish served up.

The loon family was too far away for decent photographs, so this post it text only. Sorry about that!

  1. Love the angles you chose here. Is that Joan with her spotting scope off to the right?? Those baby loons are too precious and they have grown so much. Amazing to see how the parents take care of the kids. And, the video was spot-on. This was one of your better postings, Frank. . .
