Potpouri of Things with Wings

From the last few weeks, a miscellany of winged things that have crossed my path here and there.

The Common Loons on Sunset Lake seem to be on the way to successfully raising a chick, the first in a couple of years of failures (mainly from predators and competing loons).

Beautiful photos. You must have some nice camera equipment to be able to take such photos! Thanks for posting. I live on a 12 acre lake but we don't have loons. Wish we did!
