After such a warming response to the 10 Facts About The Minnesota State Bird - THE LOON, I've decided to keep the common loon fad going by asking the question, "Have you ever seen a loon walking on land?"

While I was doing research on the common loon for the previous post, I learned that the loon actually got it's name from how they walk on land.

Because the common loon has their legs located towards the back of their bodies (for impeccable diving), instead of in the middle like a duck, walking on land is very difficult for the bird.

Check out a loon being loon-ey on land in the video below. You're welcome.
