We've got two loon chicks out and about. They seem to be doing well, both are active, feeding eagerly and look like they're interested in exploring the world. Today wasn't a great day of photography, the clouds were just thick enough to leave us with flat light. But I got a few shots worth sharing. You can see them at: https://www.ianclark.com/blog/2020/6/saturdays-loon-update-june-27-2020.
And, does everyone know that Eric Hanson at VCE and the Loon Preservation Committee appreciate reports about when loons return to a pond for the season, when they nest, how many eggs they lay, how many hatch and how many survive the season? If you're out and see something, send them a quick email with the info. If you find a loon in trouble, they're the people to call. If you happen to find a dead loon, they're interested in collecting it for a necropsy.
Saturday's bluebird video is uploading now, watch for an email in a bit.
