83 degrees  Hazy  Wind 3mph E
This has been a hot, humid day.
We get some of this kind of humid weather but we never like it.
But summer is here.  And tomorrow is predicted to be the same even with some heat warnings.  For those of you who live in the south, you would probably think this was comfortable.  But here in the north we are wimps when it comes to heat and humidity.
I just wanted to give you a quick update.
Our loons seem to be doing great and both chicks are active and doing well. 
They are venturing further and further from the nest.  This is normal behavior.  I just came in from checking on them and they are way out toward the middle of the lake.
But I wanted you to know that they were doing well because even when they are in the field of view in the LoonCam, it is almost impossible for you to see them at such distances.
The other piece of news is about the other possible pair of chicks on the lake.
I just talked to a neighbor who had been out on their pontoon this weekend and they confirmed to me that there is indeed another pair of chicks on the other side of the lake.  So there is no question that we do have two pairs of new chicks on the lake this year.
Now with 'our' loons off the nest, I may be able to take the canoe or the pontoon out for the first time this year and check them.  I will let you know what I see.
I think that is the first time in recorded history that there have been two pairs of loon chicks on this lake at the same time.
We are doubly blessed!
