Loon on Nest

The Pemaquid Watershed Association will host a presentation about loon habitat by Maine Audubon wildlife biologist Susan Gallo at the Friends’ Meeting House, 77 Belvedere Road in Damariscotta on Tuesday, October 2, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Gallo will answer many Common Loon questions, including: Why do loons choose to nest on one Maine lake and not another? Why do some loons successfully raise chicks year after year while others seem to never give up the bachelor lifestyle? Audience members will learn more about where loons are in Maine every summer and how they can participate in Maine Audubon’s new study designed to answer some of the more intriguing loon “real estate” questions. Lakeside residents are vital to Maine Audubon’s efforts and can help collect information about the features of loon lakes that might help or hinder loon nesting and success every summer. Come to learn more about the loon habitat study and loon natural history in this multi-media presentation.
