That's a loon on Lake Calhoun this morning, taken by MPR producer Jayne Solinger. It's a very lonely loon, but a loon nonetheless. Its arrival, of course, is another sign that spring has taken hold in flyover country.
In other news, several inches of snow are expected this weekend.
Bob - I miss spring, and even the risk of unseasonal snow.
Perhaps the grass is always greener/the snow always whiter with distance.
(sorry about the misplaced comment. pushed the wrong button :-(
To quote your own promo on MPR:
"We're snowblind this morning when we should be celebrating spring"
Cool. I didn't know that Lake Calhoun had loons. I thought loons just lived in northern MN. But then, I don't know much.
Dear Jamie -
Here's something that's kinda cool too:
"The doorstep to the temple of wisdom is a knowledge of our own ignorance."
Don't they just migrate through here and spend most of the summer farther north? Time to check out Larry's loon cam...
St. Paul Loon sighting: I saw one on Lake Como while out running last night.
Some may say there are plenty of loons around the state capitol as well.
great shots!! very creative.
