An eagle just drove the loon off the nest and then targeted both loons who were swimming together just out beyond the buoys.
Both loons dove for cover under the water and the eagle flew away.
One more attempt by an eagle on our loons and one more escape by our loons.
For a loon, disaster can strike out of no where with no warning. 
Even the smallest 'letting down of your guard' can prove disastrous.
But this one ends well for our loons.
