'Outdoor Happenings': Common Loons
In early January, the St. Croix Valley Bird Club sponsored an exceptional talk on Loons at the Hudson Library. Sam Lewis, from "LoonWatch," spoke on his "72 Years of Listening to Loons." Accompanied by his two young granddaughters, who provided commentary and visual aids, Sam's presentation outlined the life history and behavior of this unique bird. We are very lucky to have lakes pristine enough to support family breeding pairs of loons so close to a large metropolitan area.
