Hi Larry, 

I am still receiving signals from 5 of the loons radiomarked in 2010, including "Big John" [Big John is the surviving loon from St John's University].  The batteries are expected to expire in October, so we did not include these loons on this year's webpage.  However, I am keeping track of them and forwarding noteworthy movements to those interested. 

Sorry I missed your visit to La Crosse this summer. 

Best regards,
