We've had a pair of loons nesting in the bay of the lake we're on for several years now. Last year they successfully raised one chick. This past weekend, I was lucky enough to catch them changing places on the nest. Not being very well suited to walking on land, it was quite a process! The adult that left the nest and took to the water kept a watchful eye on the sky and sent up an alert call when an eagle was overhead. The adult on the nest left it and swam a short distance away. As soon as the eagle moved on, the nest was once again occupied. To see more interesting birds from all over the world, visit Bird Photography Weekly.
