As you've probably figured out, every bird or animal I see up at our log cabin immediately becomes my friend! (With the exception of mosquitoes and spiders!) I've really become attached to this Loon pair and kept thinking of how I could help the Loons of Michigan since their population is decreasing. (For some of you who may read my bird blog - sorry for the repeat!) Anyways, long story short - I am now a Loon Ranger with Michigan Loonwatch and will now be watching over and tracking the progress of the Loon pair on a neighboring lake. I have the mama Loon and her 2 babies pictured below.
