While in Maine there were two loons living on the pond. We could hear the loon call and see the male do his dance across the lake(basically skimming across the pond on top of the water). A couple times I tried going out on the neighbors dock, to get closer, but the loons always seemed to be heading across to the other side of the pond.
My sister-in-law said one of the loons came up right beside her when she was kayaking. She thinks she may have been near their nest and the loon was just making sure she didn’t get to close. I saw one while kayaking but he went under weather and then I didn’t see him again.
These shots were taking from the deck of the cabin.
