Can you guess what species of bird this little chick is?
I’ll give you a second to think it over…
Ready for it? A Common Loon!
Talk about the ugly duckling story in the flesh. Very unsuspecting, plain by comparison to their adult counterparts, when by mom or dads side, it’s very hard to see them – especially when riding on their backs.
I was alarmed at first to see this chick on its own, then mom surfaced; he wasn’t alone, he was simply getting a fishing lesson from mom. It was fun to watch!
