Another Season Comes To An End
All - I'm sure I share your disappointment with yet another year without any loon chicks. If there is a "silver lining(s)", I offer 1) we still have a nesting pair, and 2) the odds have to be turning in our favor.
As you may have read in recent articles, there is concern about a trend that we are losing breeding pairs in New England. While some might interpret the data as alarming, I would recommend patience to see if this is possibly a cyclical occurrence.
We will be removing the looncam system, this week, if weather allows. To me, it always feels like closing up camp, and a vivid marker of time passing all too fast for this middle aged man.
Have a great fall and winter!
