Protocol: Stationary
Comments:     It was a foggy morning, though the fog was lifting rapidly. One loon was at a distance, preening, while another was much closer in and actively fishing. The croak of a raven was heard along the shore, but not spotted. The other birds were engaged in their normal morning routines.
