Katherine Higgins and Jim Guyton, visiting birders from NC, saw 12 Spruce Grouse Saturday morning on Lake Co Rd 2 in the traditional area about 1-2 miles N of the Sand River (they did not provide me with the exact mileage; this is about 43 mi N of Two Harbors). Use caution when identifying grouse here since there was a Ruffed Grouse at this location on Friday.
They also had 2 more Spruce Grouse on Hwy 1 between mile markers 300 and 299, and in Ely they had a brief view of a probable Townsend's Solitaire on Washington St. This was on or near the 300 block of Washington (where there were Bohemian Waxwings on Friday) although they did not note the exact address.
