Odin sacrificed an eye, trading eyesight for insight, and disguised as Vegtam the Wanderer, traveled the world in quest of the wisdom of the ages. I have the eye sacrifice part covered. I'll get back to you when that wisdom thing kicks in.

The uncommon Common Loon is the Minnesota State Bird. Most years we see a handful on our lake for a couple of days as they pass through to the lakes of the northern woods. This year those lakes are still frozen solid so we have been treated to probably a hundred birds scattered around the lake with their haunting calls in the morning and evenings. There are also a dozen  different kinds of ducks. We took a drive around the lake this afternoon and I took pictures of loons, pelicans and ducks, but Lorna has been posting some nice waterfowl pictures so I won't bother posting all of mine

8:30 PM: Lorna just came home from a meeting and reports that they counted a flock of 3 dozen loons. Loons only flock to migrate. I'm betting they will soon be gone.
