The Maine Lakes Society 43 Loons Spotted on Clemons Pond at Christmas
David and Chris Dilley, who took this picture, counted 43 loons in this group on Clemons Pond during Christmas Eve and Christmas days. As ponds and lakes in the area start freezing over, loons begin their migration to the coast in earnest. Looks like this group chose Clemons Pond as something of a pit stop. Thanks to David and Chris for sharing this picture and information.
Breathtaking Aerial Views of the Pond
11/17/15: Following are amazing aerial photos of Clemons Pond taken earlier this fall with a drone-based camera. Ethan Tucker, who is Victor and Joanna Lerish's son-in-law, operated the drone and camera. These photos provide rarely seen perspectives of the pond and vividly reveal how beautifully Big and Little Clemons Ponds knit into the surrounding topographic fabric.

Many thanks to Ethan for sharing these special views of Clemons Pond at such a spectacular time of year.
