ABOUT THE BLOG

I am very fortunate. From the outset of the corona virus pandemic I have hibernated in the peace and relative security of Brant Lake, in the Adirondacks, the North Country of upstate New York. Loon dive for fish in the early morning stillness. Male Mallard ducks scavenge under my bird feeder while the females roost at home on their nests. Our chickens provide magnificent eggs for breakfast and deserted paths offer ample areas to walk.

Life is good—and yet.

Covid-19 surrounds us, and as I sit by the lake shore I am encircled by the crisis affecting our world. Therefore I am initiating a blog entitled SHELTERING WITH THE LOONS. Please join me as I reflect on the pandemic from the environment of Brant Lake.

  1. Dear Dan, So enjoy your blogs and especially about the loons because they wake me up almost every night and always have my sliding glass door open and just lie there and enjoy the beautiful sounds of the loons. We have a loon that goes across every morning somewhere past our house and then in the evening he goes back across.l They are beautiful birds and so glad that have come back to Brant Lake again.

  5. Dear Dan,
    My first reaction was, Great Dan is back. And than I thought, don’t be hasty. Wait and see what he comes up with. So, far so good. Waiting for the next posting.

  8. So glad to see you have come back to your blog! Looking forward to reading more installments. I had to skip the summer at the lake this year (first time since 1955) due to Covid. I didn’t feel it in good conscience to travel from PA to Brant Lake albeit our area (Danville) was very fortunate experiencing very low counts.
    I will read your most recent entry next and I so look forward to reading more!
