Common Loon Nesting Success in the Cedar River Watershed

Loon Nesting Success in  CRW Med

Each year we monitor the number of common loon nests in the watershed on both artificial and natural sites. We also document the number of young fledged from each nest. The number of surviving young depends on a number of factors, including number of nesting pairs, weather, and the amount of predation. River otters and bald eagles commonly prey on eggs or young chicks in the watershed.
