Loons on the Lake
Loons are a beautiful sight to see in the wild, and if you're camping at Bradford Lake KOA, you might just get a chance to experience them up close. With their striking black and white feathers and haunting calls, loons are a unique and awe-inspiring species to observe.
While beautiful to see, it's important to remember that loons are also a protected species, and we must take steps to ensure their continued survival. One way to do this is by using lead-free sinkers and jigs when fishing in the lake. Lead poisoning is a major threat to loons, as they can ingest lead sinkers and jigs and become seriously ill or even die. By using alternative materials, we can help protect these beautiful birds.
It's also important to stay away from loons and their nests. Loons are easily disturbed by human activity, and their nests are particularly vulnerable to interference. If you see a loon or a loon nest, admire them from a distance and avoid getting too close. By respecting their space and taking steps to protect them, we can ensure that these incredible birds continue to thrive for generations to come.
So if you're camping at Bradford Lake KOA and you hear the haunting call of a loon, take a moment to soak it all in, and remember the importance of protecting these incredible creatures.
