9 Common Loons -- adults -- west shore, Grand Isle

There seemed to be a mini migration of loons at the time of the
recent reports. I watched 9 fly south near the Vermont shore.
4 splashed down nearby - first a pair, then two more individuals.
An unknown number could have flown by earlier. I quit watching
after a loon flew NORTH along the distant NY shoreline.
There has been one loon here, both before and after the official
loon count, but predictably nowhere to be found during the count.
