  1. I didn't realize that the lady slipper and loon were Minnesota's flower and bird, but I think so far they are my favorites. Wonderful to be learning these, John. :-)

  3. More pretty. I wasn't surprised to see Minnesota's state bird was the loon. They're the folks that elected Ventura and Franken.

  13. Some of these birds are favorites. How many states have robins for the state bird or mockingbirds? It's interesting to see the repetition.
