Ping and Pong are growing by leaps and bounds! Their new gray contour feathers are readily visible now as more down feathers fall away. Flight feathers are growing as well. The chicks are much more streamlined. They are diving often and staying underwater for longer periods of time. And just look at those huge webbed feet! The family has had a good week with more peaceful hours. Occasionally other loons drop in to visit, and the eagles have spent time here as well, but most of the time the loons are able to relax and enjoy themselves. How wonderful for these precious loon chicks to be growing up in such a strong circle of love!
Sending all the best, Kittie
