National & World News

RHINELANDER, Minn. (KELO) – This unique family might put a smile on your face.

A team of researchers from The Loon Project spotted a pair of loons who have apparently adopted a mallard duck on a Minnesota lake.

The researchers believe the loons lost a recently hatched chick of their own, came across a duckling that had been separated from its family and decided to take the baby duck under their wing.
