While looking for turtles we came up on this beautiful loon pair romping and playing about near the road in an area away from boat traffic. One would have a hard time believing tomorrow is June 1st. It actually hailed on our way out. But did not bother the loons. However the 2 pairs we saw this weekend are together which means they are not yet nesting. As you can see in some of my photos the wind was howling. And l mean howling. It was freezing and l really had a problem holding the camera for photos. But it made for some amazing shots. The loons feathers were standing up in some shots and the water was flying. It was wonderful. And they really co-operated with me before they headed out to the lake and around the corner.

You can see the difference in the females head. Her red streak stops 3/4 of the way to the bill. Leaving a white patch there where the males is all red. Very pretty birds. l have the male here at the house all year. l only see the female come spring through fall.
l have yet to see any babies. l know they nest in the area, l am hopeful each year that they will bring them around to the feeders.
