Every year, loons make their appearances at Lake Viking. The lake is a regular stopover point during their seasonal migrations to and from Minnesota and Canada. This year there seems to be more of them. In a March 30 Lake Viking Facebook post, Ron Defenbaugh reported seeing six of them while numerous other Association Members reported sightings. Even if you aren’t lucky enough to see a loon, you can always tell they are in the area by their unmistakable call. It’s an eerie high-pitched half-scream, half-warbling sound made famous in the movie On Golden Pond. On April 8, a group of white pelicans also made their semi-annual stopover at the lake. Along with the regular year-round presence of eagles, and the increasing number of visits from the loons, these sightings make for a wonderful array of wildlife to be seen at Lake Viking.
