  1. chris, Last summer I had several loons get between setting sun and me, and they got a strong, small light coming out of their eyes as they milled about. I’ve talked to Audubon people including the one-legged vet who does autopsies on loons, and he was unfamiliar with the phenomenon. Have you see it or heard of it.
