A Common loon has been stranded on a 1 acre storm water pond in the midst of big box stores at Taft Corners in Williston, Vermont since May. Loon biologist Eric Hanson of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies' Loon Recovery Project gathered a group of volunteers in the evening of July 21 to try to capture the adult loon and release it on Lake Champlain. The loon has been feasting on abundant goldfish in the pond, but hasn't been able to fly off. Watch to see the rescue.
