From a non-intrusive distance, Dick West monitors the Intermediate Lake loon families on his frequent kayak, paddleboat and pontoon trips.  He also encourages and accumulates observations and pictures from other loon watchers during the year.  Below are links to his logs from 2018 to 2024.  There are also links to information on stressed loon behavior and loon history in Michigan.  You can contact Dick at with questions or comments.
