How are the loons on Conway Lake? Each year a group of committed volunteers seeks to find the answer to that question. The annual loon census is one snapshot of how the loons on the lake are faring. This year, unfortunately doesn’t look much better than last. Last year there were 11 adults and one successful chick. This year there are 12 adults but again only one successful chick.
