Blue Lake Chick Banded

These are the pictures from the banding of the Blue Lake chick last Sunday AM. This youngster’s father has a hook in his bill, and attempts to capture and treat it have so far all been unsuccessful. For future reference, this chick wears a silver USFWS band on its left leg, and a 003 red band on the right. Pictured from left to right are: Joe, Brad, and Peg.DSC01964DSC01961DSC01960

  1. can you get back to the horrible shape that Oneal Lake is still in, and the danger it poses to the loon?


    • Jeff Lange says:

      The danger has already been fully presented. I, in fact, strongly urged O’Neal residents to form a lake association, get together and do something about their dam back in 2009, five years before the dam finally gave out.
