A Leftover Loon

common loon

I'm really too tired to do a good posting tonight. The Earth Day Event was very busy, and I talked to a ton of people. That's good, but I have to work really hard at that skill. Then I went to a Saturday night church service. Pooped.

I've been working hard this month to finish sorting the pictures from our big Minnesota hike last May. I'm almost done! Everyone has been waiting for months to get their copies. I'm really slow.

Anyway, I discovered that I did take a fairly good picture of a loon. So, I'll just let you enjoy that tonight. See you tomorrow.

If you weren't a reader back then, the links below are a couple of posts from that hike. Most of May was devoted to it.

See Live Post- What a Hike!
See Home- The Hike Was Great!

I like the loon. I don't think they come around here too much. Maybe I'm too clse to the city for them.

I like your loon photo. The loons that live around here are of the human variety.
My word verification is cured so maybe they're all better now :)

No looney tunes to go with the pic :D It just popped in my mind. Great shot.

Nice loon shot. However, don't you be a loon. :)

We don't have loons here, so it was a treat to see one today. Enjoy your rest, Sharky.

Oh, a loon! We saw lots of them on our honeymoon in the Adirondacks. I miss them ...

So that's what a loon looks like. It doesn't look crazy at all, lol.

Ratty- They really only pass by down there. In fact, they only pass by here too, but we may see them on the lakes during migration.

Ann- loons of the feathered kind are really awesome!

Jo- Nope... although we heard them calling a lot on that hike.

Chuck- I'm always a little loony

Lin- nope, not here either, except during migration

Dennis- yes, I would like to be a little farther north where I would hear them all the time.

Ivy- they don't look crazy, but they sound like it. They laugh with an eerie kind of series of calls that one can really fall in love with once you know what it is. The call is the "essence of the north woods."
