Where is the best place to hear the call of the loons?

Postby ctyanky » Wed Sep 14, 2016 7:35 pm

I've suddenly had a calling. I want to hear that sultry call of the loons. Something I have never experienced in person. I think at this point since the moose hasn't come my way yet in my years of travel in VT and NH, I'll move on to the next best thing, loons. Now I crave experiencing the loons. :lol: Since I will be in the NEK most of the trip, what ponds/lakes up there would I experience this beautiful creature and it's eerie call? Is it only at dawn or dusk?

Maybe because we are approaching the full moon, I'm getting loonie myself. :mrgreen:

CT,
I'll take you to May Pond in Barton to hear the call of the loons. They hopefully will still be there the first week in October.

Thanks Carol! I hope this happens! I would be so excited! Do they most appear at dusk or early evening?

I tend to hear them in the mornings CT. I love to be there at sunrise when there is a layer of fog on the pond and the only sound you hear is the call of the loon. It's a spiritual-like experience for me. If you get your a** out of bed early enough you would absolutely love it. :wink: After spending the week with me you are going to be a changed woman when you see all of the beauty that you have been missing by sleeping in. In my opinion, there is nothing better than seeing VT wake up on a Fall morning.

Ahhh yes, a changed woman. Something to look forward to! Carol, I've been working on getting up at 5:30 but I still can't get out of the house until 8. I promise I'll do better. :roll: I don't want Thelma to leave Louise behind, especially if Brad is waiting!!!!! :mrgreen: (Private joke from Thelma and Louise's Part I adventures many years ago). I'll get my coffee and everything ready the night before. PROMISE!

Stay tuned for their adventures to begin on October 3rd! :wink:
