This afternoon, one large loon was doing some extreme preening just down from our dock. I wish I could send you a video but my I-Photo won’t let me do it. Here’s a link to give you an idea. https://vimeo.com/29707530
One freshly preened loon below, not boat shy at all.
In the last couple days, several folks have reported seeing either three or four of them doing the posturing ritual with the circling and dipping their heads under water. One or two of them would be our resident pair. The others could be the same strangers or new ones passing through, no way to know. We hear at least one flying in almost every morning but again, no way to ID it. Mike
