A Pacific Loon was spotted this morning on the ponds in the vegetated construction area near Dirty Socks on Owen's Lake. The ponds are next to the access road that leads from the Dirty Socks construction yard about 1/4 mile out on the lakebed. The bird seemed to be swimming strangely and may be injured or sick.
