The loons got upstaged today by what I understand is a very rare visitor to this part of the country. The first report, which I admit to being a little skeptical of, came in a little after noon but soon others called in. The first picture is compliments of Sue P and,
I got this one. Some folks have expressed concern that it may be ill or injured but it has been seen flying on at least a couple occasions so lets keep a positive thought for now. I’ll pass along more info as I get it. For those who want to try to see it, it seems to have spent most of the afternoon along Rt 53 between Branbury and Brushes Point to the north.
One loon on the nest every time we passed the island, we didn’t see a second one. Mike
