The mystical song of the Minnesota loon

Posted May 9, 2020 @ 11:56am | by Doug

~~~Tour Guide Notes~~~

This is the intriguing sound you will hear around dusk on many of Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes.  It is the common loon and it is our State Bird.

It carries its babies on its back to protect them from predatory fish like northern pike and Muskies, both of which grow to over 30 pounds and have big appetites.

To be in the northern Minnesota wilderness, especially in the Boundary Waters, alongside a campfire, looking out at the calm lake water as the sun is setting, and hear this cry of the loon is a memory of a lifetime.
