From Albany take I-87 the "Northway" to exit 24. Turn right and drive to 9N, turn left. Drive to the Northwest Bay boat access.
This Common Loon along with its partner was nesting nearby. This one appeared right next to me while sitting in my kayak, shortly after this visit the Loon traded withe the other on the nest. I am guessing this one was the Female because of the extra care and the how particular she was arranging the eggs before settling down.
