New Loon Chick Arrives

After a two year absence, our loon couple finally have a new arrival.  Born on either July 25th or 26th, the tiny bird has been seen several times riding on its parents’s back and even swimming on its own.

Please be aware of this family and keep at least 200. feet away.  We would like to keep them around.  And thank you for your cooperation during the nesting.  It worked!

Fun Fact:  Out of 11,000 lakes over 5 acres in Michigan , only 300 have nesting loons.  We are so lucky.

Thanks again to Kim Schneider on Hillcrest for these amazing photos.
