The 2 eggs should hatch in the window of June 19-23'rd

Saturday, July 17th 2021 Each year, LPC hosts an annual Loon Census to monitor New Hampshire's loons and their progress on lakes throughout the state. The invaluable data gathered from census observations are used as: a mid-season check on productivity, a mechanism for discovering unknown birds in each territory, a means to track movement of loons and define relationships between neighboring pairs, and a community based tool for generating interest and involvement in loons.

Tobin Island Loon
June 27, 2021

She laid 2 eggs in May
In June an owl attacked and dragged her off nest into water
The male abandoned the nest after a territory dispute
The new male adopted the nest, female and eggs

This morning when Mom slid off nest she dragged the egg into the water
We did not expect it to hatch. Eggs were left alone rather often

A muskrat would swim by periodicly. We named him Elon

So ends loon season

LOON FIGHT
Loon Territorial Fight
Jul 14, 2022  Three loons, 2 fighting then one chases the other out of the area.  We believe these were two males.  The current male territory owner is in his first year, having driven off the previous male in 2021.  Having just had a successful hatch of two chicks, a fight for territorial rights was a good possibility. 

The two chicks were stashed far away and the fight was on.  At the moment, we don't know who won.  Only the female is in the area and she retrieved the two chicks.

Loon Chick Rescue
July 14, 2022
  An intern from LPC rescues an abandoned chick and brings it back to the nest.  It takes two tries, because the chick imprints to the kayak but after the second drop off, the mother loon takes over and corrals the loon back to the nest. 

The chick had been abandoned by an unbanded male, who hasn't been acting by the book.  The chick was in the water, clinging to a buoy for four hours before the rescue took place.

The WRAP
July 16,, 2022
https://loon.org/looncam-blogs/waiting-for-the-dust-to-settle/

Loon Territorial Fight
https://youtu.be/tQbQ_KBLh8I

My theory is that chick 1 we called Stormy, he hatched during a storm, was off nest and away for 4 hours while chick 2 hatched.  So #2 had sole possession of raft that 4 hours.  That is one reason he didnt submit to his older sibling.  The chick fight looked a lot like his Dad's real fight.

They do learn early
