And now the chick is fully in view from under the right wing.
WE HAVE A NEW BABY LOON!!
It is looking around a the new big world that he has never seen before. Except maybe the peek he got early this morning through the small hole that he had pecked in his eggshell. But now he can see it all!
And he is pecking at the nesting material.
"There must be something good to eat here someplace, isn't there mom?! I am hungry! I have had a tough morning already and have put in a lot of work!"
So enjoy your views of our new loon chick....already dry and downy and active!
One down, one more to go!
