Yard Loon Flight Paths

    I know no one cares but dammit as long as Common Loons keep flying over my yard in April and May, I'm going to keep photographing and doing blogposts about them.   So far this season I've had ten loons fly over the yard.

  The ten birds have followed the same four distinct paths that loons in previous springs have.
  Although in years past the paths B and C were taken about 70% of the time, this year only three of ten birds have used those routes.
Following Path B
   This year 50% of the Loons have been on Path D, where only 20% have been observed using it in past years.
