Sunny and clear this morning, so we rode over to the Seney National Wildlife Refuge and went straight out on the driving tour. We were over half-way through the seven-mile drive when we spotted these three loons. They slowly circled, did no feeding—we’re guessing some type of spring behavior.
On the drive, we also saw trumpeter swans (with offspring), sandhill cranes, and, yup! bald eagles! We saw very few ducks and Canada geese. We also spotted (busy) beavers, clouds of dragonflies, and colorful wildflowers.
After the driving tour, we returned to the visitor center and also did the 1.5 mile walking tour. There we found a swamp denizen we’d missed while driving—voracious mosquitoes.
What a great way to avoid chores!
