I birded Sax-Zim Bog today to lead a birding trip and to participate in the
Brrrrdathon fundraiser for Friends of Sax-Zim Bog. Had some great times
hiking through the bog trails, and birding throughout the lightly falling
snow. Saw a Great Gray Owl, Northern Hawk Owl, Gray Jays, a Boreal
Chickadee, SO MANY Black-capped Chickadees, and more. Had a great time
leading a birding trip and birding for a good cause, to help raise funds
for Friends of Sax-Zim Bog.  eBird list from today's visit to the bog is
below:

Here is a Great Gray Owl from today in Sax-Zim Bog, non-baited of course (I
will never bait owls). We got to watch this bird for nearly twenty minutes!

Yesterday afternoon I found an adult male Harlequin Duck on the north side
of the Silver Bay marina. We had great looks at many flocks of Pine
Grosbeaks and American Goldfinches throughout Highway 1 and Highway 2, and
ended the day with a Snowy Owl in Duluth.

Here is a photo of the Harlequin Duck.

Excited for another day of birding and fundraising for Friends of Sax-Zim
Bog. Tomorrow is the last day of the Brrrrdathon.

Good birding,
