Subject: IBET Red-throated Loon - Cary ( McHenry County)
For you county listers, yesterday, 5/6, there was an immature (first
summer) red-throated loon at Hickory Grove Riverfront Park in Cary. Found
by Vicki Buchwald and Kevin Butler. It was initially in the lagoon by the
parking lot, but it then swam into the inlet leading to the Fox River. They
said it was feeding and swimming fine. It didn't seem in distress. There's
a lot of recreational traffic on the river so I don't know if it's still
around. This site is on Hickory Nut Grove Rd. There were 2 other observers
and Vicki got excellent photos for documentation.
