Pleasant Lake Loons and Mergansers
Our loon chick is doing well and spending more time diving and testing its wings. Its parents spend more time apart looking for food. Merganser female now has only 5 chicks (down from original 7) and we caught her moving them away from a diving loon in the evening.

This year's theme was Westward Ho! We thank Dave and Janet Kidder for being our Grand Marshals. Great thanks to Jen Esten for all the great pictures as well. As you can tell, lots of fun was had!
Pleasant Lake Loon Update
We are very sad to have to report that one of the Loon chicks has been lost. We don't know if it became weak for some reason or if maybe its sibling ostracized it or what the reason could be. On Friday evening we saw the chick separated from its family but then rejoined it.
