We had our annual "Hawk Ridgers" birding trip to the Sax Zim Bog today. We
were surprised that on such a beautiful Saturday, we only ran into a handful
of other birders.
Here's a partial list for our day of casual birding:
--Golden Eagle (1 ADULT seen soaring over Blue Spruce Road.got great looks)
--Northern Hawk Owls (5)
--Gray Jays (many; one on McDavitt Rd seen collecting nesting material and
--Boreal Chickadees (3.2 at Admiral Rd station and 1 at the feeding station
on Arkola Rd)
--Northern Shrike (1)
Notably absent were White-winged Crossbill, Black-backed Woodpecker
(although we didn't really TRY for BBWO) and Great Gray Owl.
We tried for Black-billed Magpies at the sheep carcass on N. Dart Rd, but
