Loon chick learning to fish

It's time for the Loon mom to observe her loon chick's fishing skills.




















If you look to the far right of this photo, you can see the loon chick with his head underwater. He was mimicking his mother and I believe looking for fish.

Amazing photos of birds I seldom get to see.

I appreciate your tip about decals for the windows after you read and saw the story of the young grackle on my bird blog.

Thanks for visiting.

Great loon shots. I went up to northern Minnesota over the 4th weekend and was hoping to spot a loon but no such luck. Maybe I will have to make a trip up the the UP sagain some time.
