Pacific Loon on Nest
Coastal Pond near
Turner River

The birds are intensely focused on the challenges of raising young. Some of that intensity is in response to the weather, which is extreme and changeable, from sunny, calm, and sixty-five degrees in one hour to cold and windy, raining, or snowing the next.
—David Allen Sibley
