Going to the Bog!

On February 13-15 I will be at the Sax-Zim Bog Birding Festival in northern Minnesota in search of the special birds that are there during this time of year. I currently have 295 life birds and I should be able to get to 300 before it is all said and done. A list of proabable life birds that I most likely get while I'm there is below. I should see all of these birds there so if I do I will be over the three-hundred mark.

  • Ruffed Grouse
  • Northern Hawk-Owl
  • Great Gray Owl
  • American Three-toed Woodpecker
  • Black-backed Woodpecker
  • Boreal Chickadee
  • Hoary Redpoll
  • Pine Grosbeak

I can't wait to see some owls! Details on how the trip went will be posted soon after the festival.
