Loony at 5 weeks

Friends, this loon chick is about 5 weeks of age and spends most of his day floating on the water waiting for one of his parents to feed him.  He is still covered with lots of fuzz but has started to shed his fuzz on his head. He is starting to look like a real loon.  The tiny bubbles in the foreground are all that is left of the parent who brought the chick food and then dove out of sight.  til Tomorrow MJ
