It's been a great week at the cabin and I am looking forward to getting back on Sunday and catching up with all of my birdy blogger friends!
I was excited to find my Loon chick a couple days ago. He did have a sibling that hatched but sadly did not make it - I believe a predator must've gotten it. (I've seen a bald eagle in the vicinity.)
This baby is doing very well for 3 weeks old. He's already able to do shallow dives in the water. I'm praying the boaters and jet skiers heed the posted signs and are careful to watch out for him as he still can't dive deep enough to avoid them. I will have more photos upon my return. Hope all of you have had a great week!
