The Round Lake loon pair finally had a successful nesting in 2017 and hatched 2 chicks in early July (a very late nest, to be sure). The video here was taken within a day of hatching. One chick was lost some time later, but the other survived the nesting season and fledged in the fall. Thanks to all the volunteers and residents for looking out for this loon family.

    So lovely…. sorry one chick didn’t make it. For the first time in years we had two hatch and fledge here on Rennie Lake. Many thanks to all the folks around the lake who pitched in and helped
