What is the State Bird of Minnesota?
JULY 7, 2015
Those eerie calls come from the Common Loon, the state bird of Minnesota. Minnesota legislators named the loon their state bird in 1961, as their state has more Common Loons than any other barring Alaska. Around 12,000 loons call Minnesota their home, and are an iconic part of the summer soundscape.
