Volunteers scour Long Lake for loons

Tuesday, July 29, 2014 - Updated: 9:00 AM

LONG LAKE -- The Wildlife Conservation Society conducts an annual loon census each third Saturday of July with the help of local Adirondack residents and visitor volunteers.

This data provides a quick glimpse of the status of the breeding loon population in and around the Adirondacks and New York state.

This year 10 boating parties completely covered all 14 miles of Long Lake, and 15 common loons were tallied.

In the past two years the loons were mostly found north of the bridge. This year six loons were found south of the bridge and nine north of the bridge.
