On a beautiful afternoon in a remote part of Aitkin County, I heard the territorial booming/hooting of a Great Gray. Gearing up for April breeding, I guess. It was about 4pm...well before dark. Shawn Zierman and I also found 4 Black-backed Woodpeckers (3males/1female) in the area.
The area is a half mile walk in and it was heard another quarter mile into the woods so not much chance of seeing it.
Also several N. Saw-whets singing in Carlton County (at my home and at Larry Weber's) this evening.
