9 Reasons The Loon Is The Best Bird
The loon (Minnesota's state bird) is the best of all birds. Here's why.
1. Loons have bright red eyes, which is cool as well as terrifying.
2. Loons live almost exclusively on the water, and take off from the water when flying.
3. Loons carry their babies on their backs like this, and it is ADORABLE.
Baby loons can swim and dive right away, but they often ride on a parent's back during their first two weeks while they get stronger and avoid predators.
