    Mercury falls from the sky in Lake Mighigian & contaminates the
    water which the loon's favorite kind of fish live in. When the
    loon's dive to get the fish which have the mercury in them.The loon's
    blood stream gets the mercury from the fish,and it causes brain cell
    damage which kills them.
