Title: Scientist Releases Common Loon

Description:

As part of a cooperative project, scientists with the USGS and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources tagged common loons in north central Wisconsin to study the distribution and migration movements, as well as foraging patterns and depth profiles of common loons equipped with archival geo-locator tags and satellite transmitters. The results of this work are expected to identify where piscivorous waterbirds are likely to be exposed to wildlife diseases and pollution.
