Comments:
I posted this as a separate sighting. I believe it is the same Loon in this pond all day, or a pair of nesting Loons at different times. This evening, the loon was going nuts! I assume it was cleaning and preening itself. it would pick at itself for a while, them roll and splash in the water. A video clip is available at https://youtu.be/yW2kU64AT9w the real action starts a little over the half way point of the video.
