I’ve seen three Common Loons on Little Lake the past few days. Sometimes they are quite close to shore near the Art Gallery and the parking spots on the south side. It was great fun to watch one of them scare off another one – a bit of hollering and a lot of running by the one scared off. It literally ran along the top of the water for some distance.
