Perry, P.S. and K. Woizeschke. 2000. A survey of common loons on small lakes in central Minnesota. In The Common Loon- population status and fall migration in Minnesota, P.H. Svingen and A.X. Hertzel (eds.). M.O.U. Occasional Papers: No. 3, 7 pp.
This pioneering and previously unpublished survey of small lakes in Crow Wing County documented the importance of these lakes for the Common Loon breeding population in central Minnesota. Loon usage of lakes smaller than 25 acres was especially noteworthy, since previous studies in Minnesota had not identified the significance of this small lake size class.
