Loons, osprey & grandchild...

7 posts in this topic

This baby loon was about 24 hrs old when we saw them floating peacefully in the bay. There is a second chick riding on this Mama/Papa's back, but it's hidden behind this one. This image is cropped pretty heavily ("I need a longer lens" she whined cry ) I read somewhere that the male loons have a more square shaped forehead - anyone know if that's true? If so I think this is Papa.

The local osprey snacking in a tree on the little island where the loons nested.

The reason I'm tired tonight - she's worth it though smile

Thanks folks - I was happy with the loon shot since we were in the boat and didn't want to get too close and stress them. The image of my granddaughter was a bonus too - she's usually moving too quickly to get a clear shot - or I'm running with the camera! smile
