Loon Watch May 18, 2016

posted in: Loons, News | 0

I toured our lake this evening, Thursday, May 18, 2016.  I observed a pair of Loons with at least one chick by Rocky Point.  I also saw a lone Loon on the Southeastern shoreline.  I might have seen loons in the far South Western corner of our Lake too, but nothing definite.  I saw a pair in that area earlier and previously reported.

I also flushed a pair of herons coming out of the large bog along the Southeastern shoreline.  They may have a nest.

There was an Eagle high in the dead tree deep in the Finger Bay, but I did not approach to see any nest detail or occupancy.
