There are TWO loons on the lake!
Apparently it is a pair since they are swimming together.  Is it one of the pairs from last year or even the pair from the LoonCam last year?
One of them was just yodeling, which is the call made only by the male and is a territorial call.  
So it seems that they are staking out their territory here around where the nest will eventually be when the ice goes out.
There are a pair of swans swimming nearby as well.  So I do not know if the territorial call was intended for the swans or if there is another loon somewhere on the lake that I do not see.  I did not hear an answer to the yodel.
The excitement builds.
