Loon turning eggs

Proverbs 22:6
‘Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.’

I had the privilege to witness the changing of the guard with loons.. I have seen many loons over the years.. but never a switch on the nest.. and the turning of the eggs before the loon sits on the nest. It was amazing and certainly a highlight in my life…. the sad part is, I went back the next morning to see the loons and the nest was empty… the eggs were gone.. no shells.. two eagles were sitting in trees nearby.. and the mama loon (or the dad) were floating nearby the nest.. it appeared they were grieving… no babies in sight.. so sad…
