our loons are back again this season
vermont tracks all nesting loons
109 pairs last year our lake allotted one
pretty noisy in the middle of the night
loons migrate to southern maine for
the winter figure that one out folks
2 herons stood on the dock yesterday
also the white indian pipes are back
the fishercat turns out to be a mink
it eats our crayfish minnies clams
we swim every day keep the kayaks
canoe sailboat rowboat busy it has new
oars what else is there to say but its
hard to be home again in this heat
