Is it pollen affecting my imagination, or do we become a bit obsessed in the spring of the year? Obsessed with flowers, obsessed with planting small and tender plants (too early, by the way), obsessed with washing that sticky yellow pollen off the car, obsessed with every new bird that flies our way… ‘tis the season to follow our passions with frenetic intensity. Then there are the loon-obsessed, and we have plenty of them in town this week for Winter Loon Research. A five day immersion in loon behavior during the day; evenings full of camaraderie and sharing between various loon organizations. Truthfully, I didn’t know what obsession was until I met the loon lovers. What’s your obsession this year? ~K
