Baby Loon

I got out in the kayak this morning before the rain.  I had heard that we have a baby loon at the south end of the lake and I was hoping to catch a glimpse.  Well, I got more than a glimpse.  See the photos below.  These photos were taken with a long lens and are heavily cropped so as to not disturb Mama and Baby Loon.

Here is Papa loon.  He was about 250 yards away, but keeping a watchful eye.

Baby Loon is a welcome addition to our Duck Lake family.

    What great images, Mark! We are at the cabin to escape the record heat at home (108* yesterday at home).
    Hope all is well.

    Thanks for sharing these photos. They are a reminder for me to visit the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary.
