On Saturday, July 1, a single loon chic was hatched to the adult pair that nested on Province Lake during June. The chic has been growing under the watchful eyes and constant companionship of the adults.
On Thursday evening, July 20, the State certified biologist team from the Loon Preservation Center in Moultonborough will be on our lake to band the adult(s). You may see a boat with a bright light on it between 8:30 and 10pm. The LPC has been banding loons for decades and the team has extensive experience in the process. They assure us that the procedure is safe and will involve as little stress as possible. Please do not attempt to join the activity.
Thank you for your cooperation.
