Allon had a busy day yesterday and we all reap the benefits.
At Silver Lake, he saw one loon on the lake and commented on the very high water which I heard from Kathy D. also. If the loons have a nest up there, it is somewhere different (and higher) than last year.
He said the raft looks great but is possibly not being used because otters are using a beaver lodge only a few feet away.
On Goshen Dam, he got this wonderful shot of the nesting loon and I think both he and Sally commented on how relaxed the pair up there are. He also saw a great blue heron and an osprey. Remember that this one should be hatching in the next 2-4 days.
He also visited the nest here on Dunmore but I think this is one of my pictures from yesterday. Today, the loon on the nest was lying nearly flat due to nearby fishermen. Hatch here shouldn’t be for another 12 days or so.
In spite of the calm water, we were unable to find any loons other than the one on the nest and the one on the front of the boat. We did see an osprey. I was amazed at the lack of traffic out there considering that this is the last forecasted nice day until next Monday. Enjoy, Mike
