Another thing to add to this question-does anybody think it will be?

>> Guided a group of birders from Nebraska today and day 2 with Ted from 
>> Virginia.
>> Highlights:
>> Spruce Grouse:  Female on the Whyte Rd about mile east of Stoney River Rd 
>> and a male about a mile and half east of the Stoney River Rd. We saw 
>> another female Spruce Grouse on the Stoney River Rd about a 1/4 mile 
>> north of the Whyte Rd.
>> ** I saw 3 lifer mammals on the Stoney River Rd!!  We were waiting in my 
>> Yukon on the Stoney River Road for the Nebraska birders to meet us after 
>> they were done viewing the male Spruce Grouse on the Whyte Rd.  When all 
>> of a sudden I noticed some shapes walking about a 1/4 mile from us.  I 
>> put my binoculars on the shapes and originally told my passengers they 
>> were Timber Wolves but as the shapes got closer to us I noticed they were 
>> not Timber Wolves but LYNXES!!!  One of the Lynxes sat on the road and 
>> faced us and the other ( smaller ) Lynx was moving along the side of the 
>> road. We wonder if they spotted the female Spruce Grouse on the road 
>> since the grouse was holding very still.  Then the grouse errupted and 
>> flew into the woods and the two Lynxes walked into the woods on the east 
>> side of the road.  Then the third jumped into the road and followed the 
>> other two Lynxes.  We knew one was smaller than the other one but the 
>> third that jumped out in the road
>> after the other two left, we could not determine if it was smaller or not 
>> since we had no size comparision. Then as we sat in my Yukon giving high 
>> fives a Snow Shoe Hare ran across the road as if the cats scared it as 
>> they were walking into the woods.  I always wanted to view these mammals 
>> and my wish came true today!  Even though they were pretty far from us 
>> for photos it was a really cool sighting for all of us!
>> Two Harbors:
>> Bohemian Waxwings along the road that leads to the Light House and South 
>> Avenue.  There at least 10 Bohemian Waxwings among a good size flock of 
>> Cedar Waxwings. Jim Lind told me these waxwings were in this area last 
>> week. Thanks Jim!
>> Duluth:
>> Canal Park Gulls:  5 species
>> 1. Great Black-backed Gulls  ( 3 = 2nd cycles 1= first cycle and 
>> 1=adult )
>> 2. Glaucous Gull ( 3 first cycles and 1 2nd cycle )
>> 3. Thayer's Gull ( 1 adult )
>> 4. Iceland Gull ( 1 first cycle )
>> * We had a unid large owl fly across the Stoney River Rd north of the 
>> Whyte Rd.
>> * Whyte Rd & Stoney River Rd continues to be a great spot for Spruce 
>> Grouse. I got excellent photos of a female Spruce Grouse to go along with 
>> my male Spruce Grouse I took yesterday.   With the warm weather we saw 
>> very little as far as finches in northern Lake County.
>> Good Birding
