Yesterday during our birdathon we witnessed phenomenon that I’ve not seen many times before. There was a flock of approximately 18 Red-throated Loons that lifted up off the water and then flew north in a ragged formation. Two other Red-throated Loons remained on the lake when we left. There may have been many more as there were thousands of birds well out to the horizon, mostly Long-tailed Ducks and Red-breasted Mergansers. 

Last year we witnessed a similar event on May 24th involving 28 Red-throated Loons.
