Loons

All of our loon pictures were taken in Minnesota and Wisconsin. The Common Loon is the State Bird of Minnesota. When chicks first hatch, they ride on their mother’s back for protection, but they quickly grow strong enough to swim on their own. Minnesota reportedly has more common loons than any other state except Alaska.
