Are Lake Superior's loons next?

Amy McMillan, who teaches biology and researches population genetics of loons at Buffalo State College, said she and others have watched the bird die-offs spread through four of the five Great Lakes. "All of these lakes are such major flyways for migratory birds, among the largest in the world," she said. "That's very frightening."

More bad news for Minnesota...

More Than 600 Birds Found Dead On 2 Minn. Lakes

At least it's not the bird flue..

Initial tests for avian influenza were negative, but officials say the cause of the bird illness hasn't been determined yet.

I bet these two stories are somehow related...
