Adult Loon and Chick

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Shawn Birmingham

There were actually two adult Loons that were feeding this young Loon. For the most part the young one would swim around the lake waiting for an adult to pop up then it would swim over as fast as it could. Occasionally the young one would dive below to try to catch something on its own. It was fascinating to watch this go on for over an hour.

Location: Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada
