This summer, Postmedia’s Tom Spears brings you the often offbeat science behind the season that calls us to go outdoors. It’s a series we call the Science of Summer. Today’s story revisits a loon researcher we wrote about a few weeks ago — the time with a new story of why loons leave their chicks at home.
I had a recent chat with Walter Piper about the loons he has been studying for the past couple of years. Now there’s more loon news: he has written about loon behaviour that seems to make no sense.http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/today-in-strange-loon-news-why-do-loons-leave-their-chicks-home-alone
