Eagle Creek Loons

This week Eric is home for spring break so we have had the chance to do some birding around Indianapolis. On Tuesday morning we decided to see what we could find at Eagle Creek. Although the temperatures made it feel like mid May, the lack of warbler species made it obvious that it was still only March.
The highlight of the day for me was the number of loons on the lake. As we were scoping the lake from the marina, we found about 6 loons on the lake and most of them were well on their way to being in full breeding plumage.

Lovely bird. I'd go loony for a chance to get some good looks at these cool cruisers
