Loon Census

Loon Census

Saturday, July 18, 8-9 a.m.

Help the Loon Preservation Committee(LPC) count our loons.  On July 18, 8-9 a.m. you can help by looking to see if you can spot a loon and observe it and then report your sightings.
Each year, LPC hosts an annual Loon Census to monitor New Hampshire's loons and their progress on lakes throughout the state. The invaluable data gathered from census observations are used as:

  1. a mid-season check on productivity,
  2. a mechanism for discovering unknown birds in each territory,
  3. a means to track movement of loons and define relationships between neighboring pairs, and
  4. a community based tool for generating interest and involvement in loons.

There will be an online census form on July 18 that can be filled in and submitted online at

This year for the first time the LPC had a web cam on a nesting pair of loons.  People could watch the pair tend their eggs and watch the egg hatch.  Only one egg hatched successfully and one did not. The webcam was taken down when the loon family moved to another area.
