Going down to the beach to see how many egrets are roosting in the trees I saw one of the egrets walking along the shore and light was just hitting him beautifully. He would take a couple of steps then get a fish. I was there yesterday from 5;30 to 7pm. By 7 there were 4 egrets in the roost.

On our last day at Algonquin Park we went to Peck Lake. A beautiful juvenile Common Loon was coming around the shore. We thought how amazing. Unfortunately it wasn't. The poor loon had fishing line all around his lower beak and holding his tongue down. A fishing hook was on his back with fishing line tangled all over him, including his neck. We called the Visitor Centre and asked for help. A warden came with a canoe but were not successful at capturing the loon. We are hoping that they will continue to try and help this stunning juvenile loon. These photos are meant to show what fishing line can do.
