I had a nice look at a broad-winged hawk at Long Pond (Westmore) Sunday
afternoon. Also a nice view (from a respectful distance) of a nesting loon.
It's apparently her second brood and she's on the opposite side of the
island in Long Pond than before. She nested unsuccessfully on the east side
earlier this year. Now she's on the west side.
