We had a chick hatched on Merrymeeting last week. Pretty late in the season but wonderful nonetheless. I doubt there are many, if any, left on the nest at this point. The issue becomes one of timing. If the new loon doesn't become big enough and strong enough to fly out by the time ice starts forming, it usually doesn't end well.
