Everyone knows that the Loon is the state bird of Minnesota, and for me I am always excited when I see one. They just seem so elegant and mysterious and the haunting call is like no other.

Minnesota Wild Hockey Players Devan Dubnyk, Ryan Suter, Marc Scandella and Nate Prosser all puckered up and gave it their best shot to imitate a loon call.  A few of them seemed to get a little winded with little or no sound made, but practice does make perfect. Maybe they can spend the off season on the shore of one of Minnesota's 10,000 lakes and listen to some real loons, to get it down pat.
