The two eggs hatched on Thursday, July 11th, but it appears we have lost one chick.  The family will stay together until fall when they will all migrate to open waters, the adults leaving a couple weeks before the chicks. Once they leave, the chicks are not likely to return for a few years and maybe never so enjoy them while they are around! Frank Malinoski recorded a special video which is on YouTube called Loon Parents Defending Chick or How Fast Can a Raccoon Swim.
