I Heard It
The first call of the loon this season came on Thursday, April 24th. I was quite surprised to see a loon on the river when there was just barely enough open water for a landing strip. I stood on the dock and listened to the waves as they made a clinckling sound when they lapped against the broken ice. The loon swam back and forth, dove below the surface of the water and then returned to the surface. What a wonderful sight and a beautiful song.
