I can hear them in my head 500 miles away

Every summer when we head north to our family cabin in Minnesota, there is nothing more comforting than the sound of loons early in the morning. In fact, this morning my daughter was asking when we’re going back again and that is why I hope we still hear them.

This first article, entitled “Legendary Loons, Northern Icons” by Dr. Reese Halter at Mother Nature Network is a really nice article about the history of Loons. The other article, “Will Gulf Oil Disaster Threaten Minnesota’s State Bird?” by Dave Dempsey at Ecolizer is just another example of how far-reaching the affects of the gulf oil disaster will be.
