Look what Gretchen Farnsworth sent to us!  We have a baby loon. Gretchen said both parents are with the chick, so apparently there isn't another egg waiting to hatch.

Gretchen said she has more photos, so I'll post them when I receive them. 

It's always good news when we have a successful hatching of a loon chick.  Now we need to remind people not to harass the loons by getting too close, and please let guests who may not be familiar with "loon protocol" they should be on the lookout for them and stay well away from them.  The chick has lots of natural predators such as large fish and big birds like eagles or hawks, so we don't want to add to the dangers they face.  Enjoy them from a distance, please.
