Pacific Loon on Lake Monona

Pacific Loon on Lake Monona.

You never know what you’ll see while biking.

On Monday, bike club went to Monona Terrace Convention Center and spotted two Pacific Loons feeding in the waters near the bike path. The kids thought they were ducks, but the pointy beak and diving behavior suggested otherwise.

I didn’t get the best photo, but that didn’t diminish the experience. Pacific loons do not nest in Wisconsin, so it’s always a thrill to see an uncommon bird.

I’ll try to head back there today to see if they’re still there. For more information go to:
