We saw our first loon of the season this morning near Minge Cove!

I could hear a Loon calling off lake Shore Park yesterday. Couldn't see it, but it was calling like crazy.

Winnisquam
 
We were westbound on rte3 west of Mosquito Bridge, and saw a loon swimming just before the NH motel. Woo Hoo.

We have had flocks (if that is the right word) of two dozen here at windy point
near end of Long Island.

Been hearing them in the mornings on Winnisquam.. Amazing echo in the morning!

One of nature's most beautiful sounds!

One loon seen several times on the west side of Welch over the past week. Always nice to see them.

Great Blue Herons
 
The great blue herons are back, as well. Saw my first one on Friday, April 15th. Just in time to file his taxes.

This past weekend was like being in a nature center in out area. Saw an otter, couple ducks, Blue Heron, Loons, Geese and heard a Barred owl behind our camp. Seen traces of deer, but haven't actually seen them yet this year.

Took a walk up behind my house early this morning to listen for the loons. Stepped in a nice pile of deer poop on the way up, of course I decided today I would wear sandals. No bueno.

At least sandals are easy to wash :)

Loons on Rattlesnake
 
We were out on the island this weekend, and saw a lot of loon activity - much more than I ever remember seeing at one time. There were several pair flying over and around our end, and then there were 2 individual loons scoping out the area flying low and fast. Wonder if they were trying to establish their territories. Also saw a pair of Mergansers and a large deer in WAM by the barges

Last week the peepers were singing pretty loud near my house.
