63 degrees  Cloudy  Wind SE 4mph


As if on cue, the other loon comes swimming toward the nest from farther out in the lake where it has been all morning.....just as two pairs of geese with their little goslings in tow go swimming by.  The loon on the nest goes into defensive posture and the other loon is now near the nest with just his head showing above water  (remember how we talked a couple days ago that they can change their buoyancy and just literally sink out of sight?!).

There has been no calling but it as if there has been communication anyway....communication that "We have a new baby!  Come and see it."

Now we wait for the official "debut"!
