This was a magicical morning on L. Dunmore. The adult loon pair with the 2 chicks were observed by myself and Kathy Dick from a discreet distance by boat. 
The birds were resting in a cove with the chicks and slowly began their routine of diving for breakfast. Upon returning to the dock we saw a young fox trying to catch a chipmunk---luckily the fox's hunting skills need honing. One fortunate chipmunk was seen streaking at warp speed away from the hunter!. 
Other birds listed below were seen and heard along the shores.
