LoonCam2 is Underway!

Our next contestants reside on a large lake with many loon neighbors, unlike our first pair who claimed the entire lake as their territory. This new pair has rejected the back to earth movement – no natural nests for them – and built their nest on one of those newfangled “artificial nesting islands.” But let’s not put on airs, shall we? It’s just a raft for loons. Their first egg was laid sometime between 8:30 last night and 8 or 9 this morning. They’ve been on and off regularly all day. We hope to see a second egg by tomorrow morning and maybe they’ll settle down to some full-time incubating.
