The migration of the loon

A scene that is somewhat uncommon in central Wisconsin... Loons. Each spring many loons use the wetlands and flowages around the area as a migratory stop before heading northward to their territories. Loons are known for making long scouting trips. These scouting trips can be as far as 100 miles and normally last a single day. The purpose, to gain a visual on how the ice melt is progressing.
