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

Kind of a sad note  on which to end the season .  :(       But, can  hope for a better season in 2022... ;)

So funny   Elon Musk-rat.  ;D ;D ;D
