Current Nest: We have one loon nesting raft in the cove bordered by Big Brook and Jerry Saverie roads. Please stay a good distance from the nest so our loons keep coming back. It yielded one chick in 2017 and two chicks in 2018. In June 2019 the nest was partially destroyed, presumably by a bear, and two eggs were lost. No loon pair used the nest in 2020. The loons returned in 2021 and had two chicks.
Build a Nest: We encourage you to build a nesting raft to increase the possibility of more chicks. Plans are available on the web - here is one example. If you are building/have built a raft, please let us know so we can post its location here.

Loon Census: LACA participates in an Adirondack-wide loon census on the third Saturday in July every year. In 2020 we counted six adults and three chicks.
