“I would start worrying if the loon is having trouble, because the loon is eating the same fish that people are eating. It's a good early warning signal.” - Dave Evers
The one thing I am looking forward to most this spring is the return of my loons. I don't think there is a more beautiful sound than the wild call of the loon across the lake on a misty morning. I will be looking out for them this summer. Last year I picked up numerous discarded fishing lines that could've strangled them and their loon chicks. I had to paddle my kayak over to these people on a boat that were getting to close to the loons and frightening them and their babies. (In case you aren't aware - if a Loon comes up out of the water with its wings or gives its tremolo call - you are too close.) I am hoping more people appreciate the loons and their fragile state. They are an excellent indicator of the health of our lakes and their beauty is to be enjoyed.
