Isolated Wyoming common loons continue to surprise researchers
By Brett French
Wyoming’s small population of about 50 common loons is related to those found in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, according to recent genetic results — not closer populations that nest in Montana or Washington, which are still more than 200 miles away.
“That’s a little bit of a surprise,” said said David Evers, executive director and chief scientist for the Biodiversity Research Institute, which published the results in a recent status update.
