Life is good -- Breakfast in bed

4 days old now, being fed a lot of small fish by both parents. Taking short dives and flapping the small ‘wings’.


Did you see my last, a video?

Yodel (several upslurred introductory notes, similar to wails, and then loud repeated phrases) Given by males in spring and early summer, especially at night. The yodel is a territorial call Its purpose is to alert other males that this loon is defending a territory. ("This is MY lake!") Yodels are often answered by other males.
