It’s Wednesday – here are some problems to solve

There are two pair of Loons nesting on Northwood Lake.  We’ve been watching them and keeping an eye out for their chicks.  They’ve recently hatched.  They are beautiful birds to see and to listen to.

The Loons arrived in mid-May.  They built a nest and laid their eggs on May 21.  It takes 26 days for the eggs to hatch.  What was the date in June when the eggs hatched?

Chicks begin to dive for their own food with they are 12 weeks old.  How many days old would they be when they began to fish for themselves?

If each loon has 10 rows of 14 white spots on each wing.  How many spots are there altogether on the Loons at Northwood Lake?

Once in the air, Loons are fast fliers.  They can fly up to 70 miles per hour.  In winter they migrate to the Gulf of Mexico, 1,675 miles away.  If the loons fly 10 hours a day.  How many days will it take them to get to the Gulf of Mexico?
