LOONS IN OUR MIDST
Come hear the evocative calls – you’ll feel transported to a northern lake! Loons are the essence of wilderness. Their haunting calls evoke images of forested lakes and remote tundra, yet many of these beguiling creatures are drawn to Camano each year. Which loon species do we host? Where do they come from? What draws them here? When is the best time of year to see loons from local beaches? This presentation will answer these and other loon questions. We’ll focus on which fish species are preyed on and how loons catch them (Common Loons can dive to depths of 200 feet!). Presenters Steve & Martha Ellis have been making natural history presentations and leading field trips for 30 years.
This community program is Wednesday, Nov. 20, 7 p.m. at the Island County Multi-Purpose Center (Blue Building), 141 N East Camano Drive. The Camano Wildlife Habitat Project, sponsored by Friends of Camano Island Parks, hosts public presentations the third Wednesday of the month.
