Spring Loon

detailled nestFriends, this is an environmental shot of a loon nesting far out in the marsh in Crex.  The loons have all flown south and now the marsh is full of sandhill cranes.  Soon they will also disappear and we will be left with the snow, ice and winter birds.  Bald eagles, snow buntings, rough-legged hawks, blue jays, nuthatches, goldfinches, juncos, woodpeckers, flickers and ever-present chickadees will remain behind to keep us company. til Tomorrow MJ
