    A beautiful photograph, Vickie. They had better stay close to her.

  • yes, for sure. I’ve seen mother Loons get mean with baby Ducks though, they are quite feisty birds, but I must say my favorite water bird. I so love the call of the Loon and their pretty feathers

    Oh, what a beautiful bird, Vickie. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Loon (well, this kind anyway, lol); I somehow thought they were a much larger bird. Thanks for sharing this beauty! :) Karen

  • thanks very much Karen, they are quite big, bigger than a duck for instance. I love the Loons and was so happy to get tons of photos this past summer at the lake.

    One of my favourite birds, for sure, Vickie. I just love hearing them in the night while I am in my tent.

  • thank you David, I love the call of the Loon too, specially out in the boat when they are telling me where they are :-)),,,,,,,,nighttime too, but from the campground
