M.O.U. November 12-13th Field Trip to Grand Marais, Minnesota

We will meet in Duluth and organize a carpool caravan to Grand Marais, 
Minnesota. We make periodic stops at several birding locations along the north 
shore of Lake Superior looking for late migrants, arctic birds migrating south 
like Bohemian Waxwings, Winter Finches and Snow Buntings. We will be keep an eye 
out for raptors migrating down the north shore like Northern Goshawks and Golden 
Eagles.  Mid November along the north shore is prime time to look for a western 
strays like Townsend Solitaire, Mountain Bluebird, Varied Thrush but of course 
any rarity can be found at this time of the year like the Black Guillemot that 
was discovered at Taconite Harbor, MN.  So if you are interested in spending the 
weekend along the north shore of Lake Superior and look for Arctic birds, late 
migrants and strays this is the trip for you!
