I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Bonus bird blogging

A young loon being fed in Lake Beauvert.

This youngster, like Heather, actually had two mommies; our guide said probably one of them lost her baby, so she was co-parenting. While one adult was diving for food, the other was feeding the baby. By the time one Mama was done feeding and ready to dive for the next course, the other would be back with food, so the youngster barely had time to breathe between mouthfuls. I didn't have any basis for comparison, but I'm guessing that this was the fattest juvenile loon in Canada.
