Now’s your chance to see the migrating Common Loon
The Common Loon, the iconic symbol of North Country lakes, dives deep for fish by day and wails, laughs, and yodels by night. Wish you knew more about these incredible birds? Allow Senior Naturalist Dan Best to share what he knows during two programs in November.
First, attend Loons in Lore & Legend on our Lakes on Thursday, November 8, from 7 to 8 p.m. to hear Dan share the loon’s life, lore, and legend. The West Woods Nature Center is located at 9465 Kinsman Road (Route 87) in Russell Township.
Dan will also reveal where and when to see the loon on our local lakes during migration. However, just two days later, he is also taking the community on a field trip during the Loon and Big Bird Lookout on Saturday, November 10, from 9 to 11:30 a.m. in search of the Common Loon, Bald Eagle, Sandhill Crane, Tundra Swans and other waterfowl on the water – a Nature’s Not to Be Missed program this season!
For that program, meet up at the boathouse parking area of LaDue Reservoir east of the intersection of Route 44 and Washington Street (Auburn Corners), then join the carpool to LaDue’s west shore to search.
Participants may attend one or both of these programs without registration. Call 440-286-9516 with questions.
