Another Pond

Gorgeous, isn't it?

Frog Song Pond is too small for loons. I recently had the good fortune to spend some time again at a friend's cabin on a pond near Lewiston, Maine. Two loon pairs, but no sign of chicks this year. I managed to record the calls! Click on the video (of the lake from my kayak, but you can't see any loons) and turn your volume up to hear these amazing creatures.

  1. Here in Norhern Ontario the sound of the loon is iconic of the North along with the wolf calls. Sadly in a large part of the US the loon has disappeared as they cannot raise their young with the wake of power boats swamping their nests which are at water level.
    Fortunately, we have many small remote lakes they do not get much traffic and no power boats.
