protecting his nest

Loon displaying his glory

This was actually shot by Pete Miner of Hinckley on a kayak trip last week. Apparently we had unknowingly paddled too close to the nest. We wished later that we'd used video, the calling between the loon and it's mate, plus the echoing back and forth created a beautiful symphony.

You should always avoid close contact with loons. They will put on a huge display that can exhaust them leading to their death.
