In my most recent column, posted on Saturday, I wrote about the loons on a nearby mountain lake which killed an intruding loon. A reader saw the incident and sent me this email:

“We were on [the lake in late] June and saw the loons attack the lone loon. At first we thought it was a loon acting hurt to lead us away from a nest area. But I caught it on video and saw them kill the lone loon ... It was brutal and quick, the killing. They are such powerful birds. They came very close to us after the attack; it was a little unnerving.”

That's fascinating Chris. Of course territorial battles can be brutal but I have never heard of Loons killing another.
