Loon Chicks Soon

The loon eggs in the nest seen on the Minnesota Bound Live Loon Cam will hatch soon according to the Loon Blog written by Larry Backlund.  Could it be today?  The predicted arrival for the two chicks is anytime now through June 11th.

Here is an excerpt from this morning’s entry (June 7, 2014) on Larry’s Loon Blog:
Watch for twitches or flinches from the loon on the nest which might be indicators that something is happening under him.  That a chick is working mightily to break itself free from the egg shell that is keeping him from his appearance to the world.

That will be one of your first indicators that the hatch may be underway.

It often can take up to 24 hours for a chick to fully break free from the egg.
