There is one question on everyone's mind, including my own.
What happened to the brave little chick who jumped into the water in the dark last night?
I am happy to report to you that I have seen him swimming with the male not too far from the nest just minutes ago!
So all of your/our hearts can relax and rejoice.
The plucky little loon has made it through the night and he seems to be doing well.
The male just let out several yodels that he broadcast to the whole lake.  And there was our little loonling swimming bravely beside him.  Apparently strong and doing well.
I know I went to bed with a heavy heart last night.  Actually not too many hours ago!  Wondering if he would make it through the night.
But he has!
So now we wait for the other egg to hatch and hopefully see TWO healthy little loonlings swimming around.
Today is a good day!
