Common Loons in Sawyer County Wisconsin on June 31, 2019

On a recent trip to Sawyer County in Northern Wisconsin, I had the opportunity to watch and enjoy Common Loons with the chicks. These chicks were already big and only saw chicks on the back of an adult from a distance one time. A total of 8 adults and 4 chicks, 3 families and some singles were seen over a period of a few days. Images were taken during the last few days of June.
