66 degrees   Clear starlit sky   Calm


I just got home after being gone much of the day.  My first reaction when I turned the picture on was that we had a chick!  Maybe I have the same wishful thinking that many of you have been talking about.

After my initial excitement and taking a 2nd and 3rd and 4th look, I am not so sure.

I keep looking at the same things that you expert loon watchers are looking at.  It has changed but I do not see anything that definitively says we have a chick.

The loon seems to be "sitting higher" and holding her wing higher.  But I do not see the "twitching" or movements that would indicate a chick hatching.

So once again we can only watch and wait.  And HOPE!
