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

July 23, 2022 UPDATE   :'(
Loon cam people said Mom, Dad and one chick are at the brooding area.  I do not know WHEN they got over there or exactly HOW a chick was lost.  Eagle is a guess.
There is no official update yet.
