The First Loon

first loonFriends, The loons returned to Crex in the last week in April and just as the last of the ice was melting.  The last of the ice is visible in the upper part of this image.  The male and female were cruising the icy edge searching for tidbits and tasty morsels embedded in nature’s deep freeze.  Soon they will start calling and doing their mating flights.  Spring has finally arrived.  til Tomorrow MJ
