That bird is 62 years old!? That's impressive! Not to mention that it's now taking care of a healthy baby. Very neat. And quite shocking. ^^ Thanks for sharing Scorps!

That is interesting, considering it is so old and recently had a baby! Very nice.

Here's something about lead poisoning in common loons. Sorry, I don't know how to do the quotes, but here's the bulk of the article.


Conserving Common Loons by Managing Use of Lead Fishing Tackle

Ingestion of small lead fishing tackle is a leading cause of known mortalities of the common loon, a sensitive species in Washington that is likely to become threatened or endangered without improved survival.

Managing use of lead fishing tackle at the 13 lakes in Washington where loons breed and rear young is intended to improve loon survival by keeping loons from being poisoned by ingesting small lead fishing gear lost by anglers.

Restrictions on lead at those lakes, which go into effect May 1, 2011, were adopted by the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission in December 2010.

The new rules prohibit the use of lead weights and jigs that measure 1 ½ inches or less along the longest axis at 12 lakes – Ferry and Swan lakes in Ferry County; Calligan and Hancock lakes in King County; Bonaparte, Blue and Lost lakes in Okanogan County; Big Meadow, South Skookum and Yocum lakes in Pend Oreille County; Pierre Lake in Stevens County; and Hozomeen Lake in Whatcom County. In addition, the Commission banned the use of flies containing lead at Long Lake in Ferry County.

I actually heard a similar story to this, but referring to a different species of bird as well as the impact it had on the fish in that area. Im surprised they even allow lead fishing gear after discovering the danger this substance possesses on health in general. Shame to hear it now reflecting on the loons. Hopefully changes will allow the species to recover. Thanks for sharing!

Could I join as a commentator? I may request to switch to a journalist in the future but I'd just like to start low:3
