Loon Update
Roughly two weeks have passed and the little loons are doing nicely. Both were seen today, no longer loafing on the back of ma or pa loon, but instead bobbing up and down in the rough water on their own. They exercised a degree of caution - never straying more than 3 or 4 feet from the protection of one or the other parent. I do believe they will grow up to be responsible members of the species that bird watchers (of the erudite and sometimes snooty variety) refer to as Gavia immer.
