Loon's egg in nest on NH lake expected to hatch soon
Written by NH1 News on .
MOULTONBOROUGH — A new loon may soon be making its debut on Loon Preservation Committee's live stream.
The Loon Preservation Committee has been streaming their second live webcam feed of nesting loons on New Hampshire lakes. The stream began June 26.
People from 181 countries and all 50 states tuned into the year's first loon cam.
Biologists with the LPC say that the expected hatch date is Saturday, but it could happen at any time between then and now as well.
Loons incubate their eggs for an average of 28 days, according to LPC biologists, with some having hatched as early as 25 days.
The loon that is currently on center cam was banded by the LPC back in 2009. LPC biologists believe she is at least 12-years old but could be older than 14.
The live webcam can be found on the Loon Preservation Committee's website.
