Anyways, there is a loon cam in Maine that I first found out about by reading their blog here. The actual camera is sponsored by the Biodiversity Research Institute in Gorham. You can skip all the background material and jump directly to checking out the loon by clicking here.
I've been watching the site for awhile and waited to post about it until there was actually a loon to watch. Well this Friday, the first egg was laid!
Loons have always meant a lot to me. Seeing them (and hearing them!) out at the camp on Webber Pond, watching them from the canoe. I was thrilled when the cabin I bought on Cabin Lake in Nikiski had a nesting pair of loons that returned every year. Loons are part of the organic fabric that ties Maine and Alaska together across all the miles, and their call will always bring back wonderful memories for me. Enjoy the loon cam! And do comment with your favorite loon memories!
Love you, Dad
