FRANCESTOWN — Have you ever wondered why a loon’s eyes are red? Why loon chicks ride on their parents’ backs? What loons are saying with those eerie calls in the night?
Biologist Harry Vogel will describe this unique symbol of wild lakes and its special place in the hearts of New Hampshire residents. He will talk about the challenges facing loons and the work of the New Hampshire Loon Preservation Committee to safeguard our state’s threatened loon population.
Harry Vogel has been studying loons for more than 20 years. Beginning as a researcher and project biologist for the Canadian Lakes Loon Survey, he is currently the Senior Biologist & Executive Director of the New Hampshire Loon Preservation Committee.
