Jim saw a bob cat on bridge over falls into Winni June 10th AM
I also called the Loon Center this AM and spoke to Linda to tell her about a pack of four I saw this AM!!!
She said that is a sign of a group of singles that behave like a gang (unfortunately). They can be pretty aggressive & actually attack chicks, but it is a natural part of their colonization into new spaces. So it's a good sign for an actual loon sanctuary to start here. Candace Cox
Hi, Bev - Dick and I searched our memory banks and both recall that Keld Agnar constructed and placed a floating nest in what he felt was the optimal location near Emerson Island. He had had greatsuccess with nesting pairs on a similar raft off Lttle Beaver Island. Although we'd had encouraging loon presence such as you describe, no nesting ever occured and, after a few seasons, Keld reclaimed the raft.
At that time some knowledgeable person, possibly from the Loon Center, explained that Lees Pond is not of sufficient size to support a pair od nesting loons. Possibly we'll just have to be satisfied with frequent visitors.
Warm regards, Arlene.
