The com­mon loon

Birds & Blooms - - Bird Tales - Justin Pru­den ST. PAUL, MIN­NESOTA

is Min­nesota’s state bird. I’ve lived here all my life and had never seen one un­til I vis­ited my dad’s lake cabin north of the cities. One of his neigh­bors of­fered to take me out on the lake to look for the res­i­dent loon. We even­tu­ally found it on the lake’s other side. The sun was start­ing to set and the light beau­ti­fully re­flected on the wa­ter.
