You’ve got family coming, and you need something to do with them,

something to get them out of the house and from under your feet.  I’ve got just the thing. Take them down to the kayak ramp at Devils Fork State Park and you can all listen to the loons together. You’ve got to get there early in the morning, as they seem to have a habit of coming along that shore just at sunrise. The gate to the park opens at 7am, which is just the right time to show up. You should hear both the wail, the sound most identified with loons, the sound sometimes compared to the cry of a lone and lonely wolf, and the hoot, the one syllable sound which is the chit-chat sound of loons as they hang out together. Both calls are lovely, even mesmerizing. Your family will love you for it. ~B
