My wife and I and Ann and Howard Rosenberg from Toledo, Ohio  spent 
Presidents weekend in Duluth looking for winter birds.

On Sunday, we found a very cooperative Great Gray Owl on CR 18   0.6 
miles east of Pietz's road  in Aitkin County  at 5:00. It  initially 
perched along the road and we then flew up to a limb directly across 
from our car and sat there for 15 minutes with fantastic views  A life 
bird for the four of us.
