Minnesota Loon Flag Tee; Long Sleeved
In choosing an icon to represent Minnesota on this shirt, it had to be the Loon, which became the state bird in 1961. Although Mercer, Wisconsin bills itself (pun intended) as the Loon capital of the world, the Loon is most notably associated with the state of Minnesota. Loons are excellent swimmers and strong-flying birds, but they aren't too good at walking on land, like many of my favorite Minnesotans. They are fascinating aquatic birds that can live as long as 30 years and hold their breath underwater for as long as 90 seconds.
