Default LPC LoonCam 2017

The Loon Preservation Committee (Loon Center) looncam is back and watching over two eggs. They are due to hatch next weekend. The link is at www.loon.org or directly to YouTube.

The night-time sounds from the pond are amazing. It is as if you are right there with the frogs and peepers.

There was one on the livecam last year that, if I recall correctly, went some days overdue. Then I lost track. Did they hatch successfully last year?

Default Loons near Little Island - Paugus Bay?

Do loons usually nest in the same location year after year or do they move around? There were some in Paugus Bay last year around little island - wondering if we'll see and hear them again this year.

They usually nest in the same place. They have nested in the same place in Green's Basin for as long ad I can remember.

Those are mergansers, ducks. Loons usually only have one baby, occasionally two.
