Who knew that the baby loon really does ride on the back of its mother? I found out the other day, two weeks ago when I met these two in our backyard at Kezar Lake in Center Lovell, Maine. I've had a great time watching them this summer and thought you might like to see these beautiful birds!
He is very protective of his family. See how he is steering them away from the motor boat.
I was happy to see he was still alive after the weekend that I just had to take another photo!
Mom and chick doing well.
Pops once again watching out for them.
