Spring is here! The Loons have returned and so have Jen and Jon, eager to welcome a new season. The Loons laid their first egg on May 18th. As of 3 pm today, May 20th, there is still just one egg. We are hoping a second will be laid tonight. They have returned to the nesting raft – please respect the buoy line and keep out of that section of the cove until they are off the nest around the end of June. As with a lot of birds, the feather colors change with different light. For our loons this means their neck and head feathers vary from black to green and blue, sometimes even maroon. Changing of the guard, with one egg on the nest. The bands tell us which is the mother or father.
