Where the Loons Call
The number of loons on Maine lakes and ponds has doubled since 1983 when their populations were on the decline. The increase in numbers is thought to be due in part to educating the public on their habitat needs and the public's response to that. The author recounts her experience of a night when she accompanied researchers from the Portland-based Biodiversity Research Institute to Little Sebago Lake where they studied the health of the loon population.
