April-May 2013: Welcome Spring; Welcome Loons!
Spring is here, notwithstanding a few lingering reminders from Old Man Winter; and the loons are arriving back home again! We have had reports from all over Michigan in the past week or so, and we are (long with the loons) anticipating increasing ice-out conditions on the territorial lakes. With the loons’ arrival begins the work of our Michigan Loonwatch Loon Rangers as they monitor and protect the birds as they begin the season, from reaffirming their pair-bonding, to reestablishing their ownership of their territories, to nesting and raising their young. Without this important work, the loons
could very well disappear from our state; and so we prepare for another hopeful year for our Michigan loons, and to see the little families out on the lakes this summer. Thank you, Loon Rangers and all those who work to protect and preserve this beautiful natural treasure, our Common Loon!
