Whether you’re seeking flurries of migratory ducks, geese, swans (two species no less) and Sandhill Cranes in the drainage of the mighty Mississippi River; on a spring quest to set your sights on a Connecticut Warbler; braving winter’s cold to delight in the sight of a Snowy Owl, Great Gray Owl, Gray Jay or Common Redpoll; thrilling to the passage of regal raptors at Hawk Ridge; birding the region’s far-flung constellation of state parks, natural areas and wildlife refuges; or combining birding with sightseeing or business at any season, you’ll be glad to have this booklet.
This affordable guide will serve as a lasting memento of any Great Lakes trip and will conveniently fit into any daypack, pocket or glove-compartment, facilitating easy field identification—whether in a Duluth garden, on a family vacation, or a serious birding trip visiting all the best birding hot spots in The Land of 10,000 Lakes.
