I know that Black-throated Blue Warblers aren't uncommon along the
Shore, but it seems like many of the spots can be a difficult hike for
some.  When I was working in the area on Wednesday, I found an
easy-access Black-throated Blue Warbler along the Superior Hiking

Getting there from 61, heading north:

Just past the Cascade River State Park main entrance, turn left on CR
7.  After about 4.5 miles, there is a left turn that should be either
48 or 158...sorry I didn't check more carefully.  You're heading north
for about .3 miles and come to a T intersection with some red pines in
front of you.  Turn left (now you're definitely on 158) and drive for
about 1/2 mile.  The road takes a 90 degree turn to the right here.
Continue about another 1/2 mile to the parking lot for the Superior
Hiking Trail.  The Black-throated Blue Warbler was singing and
eventually visible about 100' or so down the trail to the east side of
the road, relatively flat terrain.  The trail intersection with the
"Sundling Creek Pond" sign would be a good spot to listen for it.  On
my way out, I could actually hear the bird singing from the parking
lot, so it's possible to find from the road.

Otherwise, Grand Marais and vicinity was really slow during what
little birding time I had during my 4 days there.  There were 2
Swainson's Thrushes singing from the west side of the Cascade River
State Park campground where the campground comes closest to Cascade
River and 4 Evening Grosbeaks plus a Magnolia Warbler at the so-called
'overflow campground' near the maintenance shop.
