I'm a fan of lots of birds, but the haunting cry of a loon, which I've heard only a few times, always has intrigued me.
Thanks to my friend, Caroline Baldwin, she had shared photos of loons and their chicks from her friend and photographer Ellie George.
Here are the latest Ellie photos of loons and their chicks.
Ellie says: "Attached are some images of my first loon chicks of the year from a small pond in the eastern Adirondacks. These loons always nest early, and the chicks in the photos are already 3-4 days old."
