We are fortunate to have a pair of nesting loons on Franklin Pierce Lake. Usually one or two eggs are laid in late May or June, and incubation of eggs generally lasts 26-28 days.  If the eggs are lost, the pair may renest, often in the same general location. Frank Malinoski took the following picture on June 13, 2015 as our loons had begun nesting on the island in front of Breezy Point.  Sad news as of July 7 as it appears something bad happened and the loons are no longer testing.  Loon experts say that it is lucky if loons have chicks once every three or four years.
