2018 proved to be another very good breeding year for Common Loons in Vermont. We found 91 nest attempts with at least 73 chicks successfully fledged. It was also another record-breaking year for LoonWatch, with volunteers counting 356 adults! The number of chicks counted was not record-breaking, but still a healthy tally of 65 chicks.
