Coffee Pond_3390_Robert King_Loons in a Territorial Dispute

Robert King's Blog This is the "Penguin Dance". "One of these loons is a parent of the two chicks and it is confronting the other loon, which is intruding into the nesting pair's nesting territory. Loon chicks are susceptible to predation and attacks by other loons intruding into the nesting territory. The intruding loon here is probably the loon in the foreground. Sometimes the intruding loon cooperates and can easily be escorted out of the area by the parents. However, here we see there is a conflict. The intruder will be forced to leave the area that the nesting pair considers to be their nesting territory. I have many other images of this conflict but I just discovered that my dock is malfunctioning. To access the other images I must order a new doc on Monday. Loons have acute long-distance hearing and eyesight; they are able to detect an approaching loon long before I even have a clue that something is about to happen. At the outset of this confrontation, the two parents very quickly "stashed" their two chicks, probably along the Coffee Pond shoreline." ~Robert King

UPCOMING WEBINARS & EVENTS
FREE TO ALL

The Maine Loon Project. Presented by Tracy Hart; airing Friday, July 30 at 4pm

Tracy Hart, Director of the Maine Loon Project, will talk about the Maine Annual Loon Count, population trends, and tools on the Lakes of Maine site for learning about counts and survey efforts on individual lakes. She will also share fun facts about Common Loon natural history, threats, and conservation efforts in Maine.

What kind of lake is that? Using monitoring data to organize Maine’s lakes into categories for better water quality assessments and protections; airing Friday, August 13 at 3:55pm

Maine has thousands of lakes, and all are unique. However, many lakes share traits that help lake managers, watershed organizations, and researchers, compare and evaluate them. This is especially important for lake assessments, which often compare a lake’s condition to the condition of reference lakes from minimally-disturbed watersheds. By determining which natural attributes of lakes and their watersheds have the strongest influence on lake condition, we can place lakes into categories that define what the conditions of certain types of lakes should be. These categories help managers place lake data in the proper context for better evaluation and planning. This talk will be about how lake types were developed for Maine lakes, and how these types may be applied to lake assessment and protection. Work like this is possible in large part because of significant contributions of long-term data from citizen scientists through the Lake Stewards of Maine. Applications of these data, beyond basic water quality monitoring, will also be discussed.

Maine Lakes: from birth to death, and “everything”; coming Friday, August 27 at 2pm

This presentation is a look into the geologic cycle of Maine’s lake. Dr. Norton will explore the the chronology and formation of Maine’s lakes, the evolution of the soil chemistry and water chemistry during the last 16,000 years, a bit about the major responses of lake water chemistry to this evolution, the detailed history of anthropogenic air pollution as seen through the lens of sediment chemistry, and conclude with the life-after-death history of a Maine lake.
