A lone loon stuck on icy First Lake was rescued by conservationists just in time.

The bird got trapped on the Herkimer County lake last week, making it likely prey for animals in the area.  

A photo shows a team from the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation coming to the rescue.  They ventured carefully onto the ice. Using nets, they captured the loon, then released it to an area where it could migrate safely.
