Loon population gets a helping hand in southern Minnesota
The Associated Press, Mankato, Minn.
It may sound loony, but southern Minnesota needs a hand in providing a home for the state's official bird.
Minnesota's loon population is stable at an estimated 4,800 breeding pairs, but their numbers are weaker in southern reaches. And a study from the National Audobon Society last year suggested loons could be pushed out of Minnesota altogether by 2080 as the state's lakes warm.
