 I was in Minnesota last weekend and I was able to get a couple of neat photo opportunities.  This is one of them.  There was a pair of Loons on one of the ponds near where we stay.  As I watched them, I realized there was a baby behind one of them.  As I watched, the baby got on mom's back to ride and I was able to get this photo.  I had seen pics of them doing this but this was the first time I was able to see and capture it.


  1. I've looked for the same situation as well, still haven't found a young loon on its parents back. Nice find

    1. Thank you very much Jim! Hope it happens for you like it did me. I had to watch them for a while before it went on the back.

  2. That's funny! I've seen this with Western and Clark's Grebes, here at Lake Hodges. I wasn't sure whether other birds would do that too. Very cute, and the loon is a beauty!
