Loons unsuccessfully trying to nest?

Date Posted: April 27, 2015

Have you witnessed Loons UNsuccessfully trying to nest in the same spot for 2-3 years in a row on Otter Lake? If so, OLRA would like to know where. We have had two pairs of Loons successfully nesting for a few years in a row now. One pair has all of Little Otter Lake as its territory. The other pair has the territory around Tappattoo. Loons are very loyal to their lakes and their territories, returning year after year to the same locations. So if you know of unsuccessful nesting attempts in other spots on Otter Lake, please let us know. A Loon nesting platform may help which is what we will investigate. Please relay your info to Kerry: kerryemueller@gmail.com 519-463-5454 Thanks!
