A Pacific Loon was seen at close range from Lake Waconia beach this morning. He hung around that area for a bit until he began moving west and away from shore. Eventually I lost him and never found him again, though I did check along the shore in town. There may have been 2 other Pacific Loons slightly east of shore. They came from the center of the lake and were heading towards the beach until a fishing boat got really close to them. They turned around and headed back towards the center of the lake. I found the Surf Scoter this morning east of the beach and heading east, but I did not see the Black Scoters. Otherwise the only different birds on the lake were a few Common Goldeneye.
