Annual Loon Census Begins Saturday Morning

This year's census of loons on lakes in and around the Adirondacks is Saturday morning. Volunteer observers are needed to record the number of adult loons, chicks, and immature loons observed in a one-hour period, from 8 to 9 in the morning. Nina Schoch, Program Coordinator of the Adirondack Cooperative Loon Program, says data from Saturday's Loon Count provides a quick glimpse of the status of the breeding loon population in the Adirondacks and the summering loon population in New York. She told Todd Moe the data will be used by the state DEC to better monitor the loon population and to implement management efforts if needed.
