Another Loon Death

It is with sadness that I report that we have suffered the loss of an another adult loon on the lake. The Jacobs at 1160 Lakeshore Rd S. reported that they found a dead loon adjacent to their property on August 18th. When I heard the news I had a sick feeling in my stomach!

I have not been able to connect with the Jacobs to understand the details of their discovery and will report on the event as details become available.

We were at the lake this past weekend and saw two loons, one juvenile and one adult. The adult was making those plaintive calls and knowing of their loss the calls seemed to have a mournful tone.

This is the third year in a row that we have suffered an adult loon tragedy. Something is terribly wrong. Hopefully we will be able to research this death and with a better understanding hopefully we can take some remedial action.

Too sad. I had not seen the three loons swimming together for a few weeks now and was wondering if something had happened. Third year in a row for a loon to die...unbelievably tragic. Why does this keep happening on our lake?
