Common Loon - Saratoga Spring Waterfront park

Yana Levchinsky-Grimmond

Excellent birding weekend in general- but it was particularly exciting to see a loon on the Saratoga Lake yesterday. I saw them earlier this month but in Nassau county. The lone adult loon was swimming between the beach and the marina next to Fish Creek access point. Martins were there as well and were very agitated as house sparrows were trying to move in.
