Update on my baby Loons!

I'm still up north at the cabin but had to do a quick post this afternoon to show you one of the Loon babies I found this morning. Can you believe how big he's gotten? (Check back on my earlier loon posts to compare.) I will be back tonight and will catch up with all my nature blogging friends. Hope you had a great labor day weekend!

P.S. Jessica at Five Pines has a Toledo bird book for any interested persons in that area. Be sure to check out her blog (her Five Pines link is in my sidebar.)

Shelly I really envy you for the experience of being able to see and hear these beautiful loons.

Thanks Shelley!

What a lovely photo! I'm not sure I'd recognize it as a loon. I've never gotten such a nice look at one.

Home safe.

Jessica - you're welcome!

Lynne - he's still a juvenile - I believe next year he will have his full loon colors!
