Common Loon

Common Loon
 The common loon is the state bird of Minnesota. They are commonly found breeding on fresh water lakes in the northern half of the state. This is on the southern edge of their breeding territory which extends north through most of Canada and Alaska. Here in the southern part of the state we usually only see them during migration. They winter in coastal waters around most of North America. They are easy to identify by sight or by their unique call.
