Waiting for the loons…
The loons have been back for a few weeks, their distinctive calls echoing across many of the lakes and ponds around Bragg Creek and the neighbouring Kananaskis Country. I have had a couple of nice morning and evening encounters with them and am now looking forward to photographing the chicks.
Bobbi and I are off to the Khutzeymateen to catch up with the bears that I met last fall. They are up from their hibernation and the cubs will be out to play while the mothers stay wary of the boars who are looking to couple up. It will be an exciting trip and I’m so happy Bobbi is able to join me this time around. When we get back, I will be out looking for the loons and their babies.
Love the loons. They were our state bird in Minnesota and I loved listening to their call in the evenings. I miss it.

I love the loons – they really make a place special. Your trip sounds exciting – hope you find lots of bears. Are you going with a group tour or do you have to in that area?
