LPC Chick 2 hatched
June 22, 2021

Chick 2 hatched just after midnight today
Chick 2 meets Dad for the first time

Dawn - Mom called to Dad across the lake
Dad came with chick 1
Chick 2 didnt know Dad and did NOT want to go in the water
So Dad brooded both chicks awhile
Mom swam free after around 30 hours

Tobin Island Loon
June 26, 2021
One chick hatched but died
Mom took it and shell bits away from nest
Her 2nd egg doesnt look good, probly wont hatch.
She may be young

A couple weeks ago an owl attacked Mom and her mate.
It chased her mate off, but she got a new mate.

2 cams

NO YOUNG for 2021
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
( Elon Musk-rat )

So ends loon season
2 hits
2 misses

So the 2021 wrap is
3 loon nests and 6 eggs resulted in 2 live chicks
Loons dont breed til age 5
They have a low hatch-fledge
