one more loon

Friends, this loon chick is now ten weeks old and starting to get some flight feathers, they can dive after some of their food, but the adults are still feeding them to supplement their diet.  they are starting to look like loons, have lost most of  their chick down and now have a smoother head. They are almost as long as the adults.  til Tomorrow MJ

  1. Fascinating to see them maturing, thank you MJ!

  2. MJ, Jimmy needs to borrow this piece to paint his duck stamp heads. The heads he is painting has no detail. Yours has perfect detail. Amazing quality.
    Love the image. jw
