Who knew that the baby loon really does ride on the back of its mother? I found out the other day, two weeks ago when I met these two in our backyard at Kezar Lake in Center Lovell, Maine. I've had a great time watching them this summer and thought you might like to see these beautiful birds!
Here the daddy loon showed up with dinner! The two have been fishing and feeding all day everyday now.
He is very protective of his family. See how he is steering them away from the motor boat.
