I mentioned this morning that I had heard a loon and wondered how long it would take me to see one. Often it is days and days before I spot one. Well, this morning one of the State Rangers was watching through his scope and he found 3 of the common loons ... but way out of the reach of my camera. Patience almost always pays off. Soon the 3 loons had floated across the lake and gave both of us a good look at their handsome visages.
