Postscript: I was talking to some folks last night that live at Robert's cove and they confirmed the loon chick indeed did not survive. They said the body was found near Plum island and that the Loon Society examined the remains. They said that the chick suffered numerous bone fractures that perhaps were caused by a boat collision. The society was a little surprised because the chick was of a size where it should have been able to dive to avoid most dangers.
The chicks can be difficult to see, when in their light colored plumage, especially when there is a glare on the water.
