The loons are doing fine!

About an hour ago, I saw them straight out from the nest.

All four of them swimming together.

The two chicks were actively swimming back and forth.  They have grown so much in just over a week.

They must now be at least 4 or 5 inches long, although it is difficult to judge from a distance.

Last night close to midnight, the loons were calling loudly for almost an hour.

Apparently it was "our loons" calling with yodels and tremolos and wails from this side of the lake.  Only to be answered by another pair of loons on the other side of the lake.  Apparently the other pair that has reportedly nested on a channel over there.

Yodels and tremolos.  Only to be answered by yodels and tremolos from the other side of the lake.

Over and over and over.

It was a symphony worthy of any world class orchestra.

And one that would lull a person into the most restful of sleep and dreams.
