World's Largest Loon
This loon has for decades hooted down the claims of several newer, nearly-as-large rivals. At 20 feet tall, it was built in the early 1960s, paid for by the Vergas Fire Department, and dedicated to a deceased town postmaster (whose name was not Loon). It looks out over Long Lake, perhaps in search of a similarly over-sized mate.
Vergas calls itself "Home of the Loon" and holds a "Looney Daze" festival each August, which is a wise time to visit a lakefront in northern Minnesota.
