Disconnected from their closest western kin by hundreds of miles and declining in numbers, Wyoming's loons are the rarest breeding bird in the state. Game and Fish wants to make sure they don't disappear for good.
At some point around Sept. 11, 2014, loon No. 1048-00611 decided it was time. She spent the summer in northwest Wyoming, but with fall approaching, she lifted off Wolf Lake and began her migration south to the ocean for winter.
