“While out kayaking today in central Maine, I chanced upon this loon on a nest. I took a few quick photos with my telephoto lens (I wasn’t as close as it may appear), and quietly paddled away, so as to disturb her as little as possible. It was a beautiful day to be out on the water in a boat.” —Photo by NRCM member Jane Davis of Wayne, Maine
NRCM note: Jane’s photo serves as an important note to be careful not to disturb nesting loons, and also as a reminder that we are caretakers of our environment and the wildlife who rely upon it.
