An April week in Indiana in 2022 surprised all of us there watching the incredibly unstable, changing weather. A full moon, sunrises, cold temperatures with snow, and birds living through it all … spectacular!
Yes, that’s a loon. One of the most remarkable bird songs in midwest US imho. The swans number 6 usually between Stone, Mud and Fish Lakes (and we found 2 dead ones sadly). The poor Mourning Doves in the snow still sang! I saw few Cardinals which is my Indiana bird memory.
