Common Loon Baby

We went boating on a mission this weekend, there was rumor that the Loons on this one lake had been out with their baby.  Is a baby loon called a chick or a duckling?  Any way we found them.  The baby was so cute.  Late we were talking with a couple and they gave us the sad news that the loons had two babies but a neighbor saw them pushing it in the water trying to get it to swim but it was too late.  They weren't sure what had happened to it but they were very upset.  They were happy to see the photos of the surviving baby, they were worried something may have happened to it too.
