Hello from the Cabin,
The loons have been quite active on the lake. At sunset the tremolo of their calls echoes hauntingly across the water. I am pleased they choose this lake to visit for a while. It is an unmistakable call and can be quite beautiful to hear in the early morning as the mist rises.
My best guess is that the loons do not like the tannin color of my lake as they are unable to see the shimmering fish through the dark colored water. They do not eat algae as fish, frogs, etc. are their mainstay diet.
They migrate through here but to the best of my knowledge do not nest on this shallow lake. Guess they don’t like the shallow water either.
I want to let you all know that my two short stories, “Requiem for Ernie” and “A Dog Named Bunny” are now in print in the April issue of "U.P. Reader". You are welcome to get your own copy at: https://silver-mountain-press.myshopify.com

I look forward to discussing these stories with you and ideas for future stories.
