We had chicks in the basin weeks ago. The Loon Preservation Society removes the signs whenever they want to. So far the two chicks are doing great, but we have so many boats coming into the basin to do water sports. The chicks are often in the middle of the basin and many boaters do not pay attention to the loons at all. They just keep going around them. We lost a chick to a boater last year. They have one of those wake board boats that make the huge waves. Their waves caused a chick to be separated from the parents and the rest is history. The boat is from a house in the basin. They spend hours and hours out there.
