We had an unusual appearance in the salt marsh this past weekend when a red throated loon cruised in for a brief visit.
This is not a bird we often see so it was a nice treat. The loon floated back and forth in the salt marsh during mid tide while most of the wading birds were sitting in trees or feeding elsewhere.
The loon didn’t seem to be especially timid or concerned about a person pointing something at him, and he got quite close at one point.
Anyway, at least it was something different then our usual sightings of Radar. Not that there is anything wrong with that, and later this week I will be posting photos from today of our egret pal with his new friend. 🙂
