Last  week's bird brain trivia question was what is the only group of birds that go through a total molt or loss of feathers before they migrate?  The answer is Waterfowl (Ducks, Geese and Swans) will go through a complete molt of feathers becoming flightless for a short period of time. Can you identify the bird in the photo gathering nesting material? This bird is one of the last to nest in the state and also was the unofficial state bird of Minnesota before the Common Loon was adopted. Please post your guess's on Visit Brainerd Facebook page and I will have the answer next week. Good luck. 

 

A few locations to check for birds in the lakes area include the Northland Arboretum in Brainerd, St. Mathias Road on old business Hwy 371 south of Brainerd and Kiwanis Park along the Mississippi River also in Brainerd.
