LoonWatch Results


Vermont LoonWatch day was conducted on 16 July 2016 when over 200 volunteers counted 301 adult loons, 74 chicks, and 2 subadults. Loons were observed on 112 of the 153 lakes surveyed. The total number of adult loons was similar to 2013-2015. Forty-six of 301 adult loons counted were located in southern and central Vermont, an increase from 39 in both 2013 and 2014, but lower than the 51 adults observed in 2015. Volunteers counted the most loons on Joe’s Pond (14 adults) and Lake Memphremagog (10 adults) followed by Green River Reservoir, Little Averill Lake, Norton Pond, Seymour Lake, and Lake Willoughby, all with 9 adults.
