RUSS HONS: Photo Gallery — A Loony Night

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Grand Forks photographer Russ Hons captured these closeup shots of the common loon Thursday night in northern Minnesota. The bird was adopted as the official state bird of Minnesota in 1961. They are known for their cries, wails and yodels — their eerie, echoing calls are a distinctive feature of Minnesota’s northern lakes.
