2017 Loon Observations on Jack Lake
Wednesday November 29, 2017Loon observations recorded during the 2017 season have recently been summarized. This includes four lake wide surveys as well as numerous other random observations.
A total of 37 volunteers participated in the 2017 program. JLA volunteers have participated in the Canada Lakes Loon Survey since its inception in 1982.
Despite high water levels during the nesting period, we believe that 5-6 loon pairs nested and produced a total of 8 young-of-the-year. As of a week ago, several large juveniles are still present on the lake.
This information has been forwarded to Bird Studies Canada and MNRF's Natural Heritage Information Center.
Jack Lakers are invited to participate in this program again in 2018.
