Feeding the Loon Chicks

I got such a thrill watching the Loon parents hunt for fish for their babies. The Loon father was an exceptionally good fisherman and was handing fish after fish to his two chicks.




I think Daddy has a fish for you.











Watch how carefully he hands the fish to his chick.
Thank you Daddy!

Oh my gosh! That is so cute.

I have got to get a better camera. At our cabin in the Adirondacks there are so many good pictures waiting to be taken.

You take some really great pictures!

Sweet shots. The left chick doesn't seem to be excited, though! ;)
Cheers, Klaus
