Hiding in the Grass-Late Nester
Friends, this Common Loon in Crex Meadows is just now sitting on her nest. Two other Loon couples have chicks that are six weeks and 3 weeks old already, will be interesting to mark her progress. Another opportunity to map the chick progress if they hatch and make it through the summer. This day in June was pretty hot, 88 degrees F, so she was panting a little. til Tomorrow MJ

ooh, lovely shot mj, you might be able to follow the progress of this nest all the way through!
I will if i am able, sometimes they move far away from the nest after the chick have hatched, but whatever i am sent to do, thanks Christine, MJ
