There is good news this morning!!
Just a few minutes ago, I happened to look over at the television [where I keep the picture on from the LoonCam most of the time] and the loons were up on the nest and mating.
This is very good news since it indicates that they are once again taking ownership of the nest and that we may actually be able to watch them again this year.
This is the first time this year that I have seen them actually up on the nest.  As I have already told you, they have been in swimming around the nest platform but I have not seen them on the platform before now.   There has been no nest building activity so far.  
Right now the female is still sitting on the nest while the male swims a few feet away.  She is not showing any signs of nest building but is just sitting there looking around at the nesting if she is asking herself 'I wonder if this will work for us?  Yeah, I think this can work for a nest again.'
After a few minutes, she slips off the nest and the two of them swim off together.
So there is good news this morning!
Later today, the technical gurus should be here to install more equipment that is necessary to make this whole thing run and to be able to send a picture to matter where in the world you are!  Stop and think of the miracle of just that!  That you can watch our loons no matter where you are in the world or how many miles away you are!
So hopefully, if all goes as planned, you will be able to once again watch our loons LIVE!
The anticipation starts to build!
