Have you ever seen Loons excercise their young like this?
It went on for over 45 minutes. During the day the youngster would do false take offs to strengthen his wings but I could never get him on camera.

Only just now catching up and really enjoyed the video, thank you willcfish. It sounded as if you might have been filming from your kitchen window.. if so, how lucky you are to have loons so close to your house. I've only ever seen them on webcams and they are not very common in the UK, I don't believe. Thank you for sharing it.

You are welcome Laurad. Was lucky enough to be at a friends cabin on a small lake. I wish it was my kitchen.
