Our Last Hope has Hatched!

Two eggs that didn’t make it and one chick that only lasted a few hours, and now today we have one more chance. The Loon Cam #2 chick hatched sometime around or before 12 noon. Mom kept it under her far-side wing for an hour or more, so we can’t determine a more precise time.
The chick will range a little further throughout the afternoon and probably take its first swim. Now is the best time for chick watching.
