Follow the leader

It's so endearing to watch these Loon chicks follow their parents so closely.

Follow the leader!

Looks like someone has a leg cramp!

That leg just jumps out at you. I did a double take, then saw your comment. The little families are always so much fun.

Loons are so cool. Once paddling in the Boundary Waters we had a loons along side all the way across the lake. I think it wanted to race actually!

Thanks for letting us watch the Loon family grow.

Leedra - I agree - I love the families!

Dave - thank you!

Birdlady - glad you think so! :-)

KJ - These loon chicks certainly do!

Trout - they say the more loons get accustomed to your presence - the more tolerant they are. Just need to be mindful during their nesting/baby season or they will abandon them. How cool that they swam next to you!

NC - it is a joy to watch and share them. I can't wait to see how big they've gotten next week!
