Common Loon chicks!

So I went out on a boat today at Lac Le Jeune and I came away with a very special experience!
It was a day I will never forget. The loons were feeding their babies dragonfly nymphs. We saw 8 loons and 8 babies! Two loons were riding with 2 babies on their backs! It was completely adorable! 
The loons were also calling their mystical/haunting call and hearing it so up close and personal was a really moving experience!
We are so blessed to share a planet with these beautiful birds!
Here are some photos I would like to share from today:
