A Pair of Loons

Every day since I've been in the County I've seen this pair of loons on the bay. No chicks in evidence and I don't know if there's a nest, but yesterday I did see a racoon with three young ones working the beach, so this may not be an ideal place to nest.

Not a great picture, I'm still learning the limitations of "digital zoom." And it's also a little hard to read because this raccoon has no tail, and her back end is facing the camera. Her three babies though are perfectly tailed--what you could see here, if the image were better, is the raccoon looking off in the direction in the shrubbery where the babies were playing when I took the shot.
