2/9/19 to 2/13/19 Sax-Zim Bog, Duluth, MN:  Hey, we heard there was an Arctic Vortex up north so it
sounded like the place to be.  It was a fun Valentine's Day celebration!  (Alesches' Accommodations was
wonderful and is highly recommended.  Thanks so much, Cindy and Mark!)  Braving -30 degrees and a
blizzard, we caught all sorts of goodies, including the Great Gray Owl below.  (Ravens were calling and
this seemed to draw the owl's attention.)  Also: Canada Jay (Gray Jay), Boreal Chickadee , and a very
distant Northern Goshawk .  Click on NEXT PAGE below for more images from this trip.
2/9/19 to 2/13/19 Sax-Zim Bog, Duluth, and Two Harbors, MN:  Bohemian Waxwings !  Many a time we have
searched Cedar Waxwing flocks, hoping to see one there.  In the midst of a blizzard, we found a flock of
200+ (and left all our car doors open in the excitement  - thus accumulating a foot of snow inside!)  What
gorgeous birds and we were thrilled to see them in whatever weather.
2/9/19 to 2/13/19 Sax-Zim Bog, Duluth, and Two Harbors, MN:  More Pine Grosbeak (m,f) images!  We were
surprised to get any images as they munched on breakfast in the blizzard and the wind whipped the snow
about our equipment.  Also: Pine Siskin , Hairy Woodpecker , Wild Turkey , and Black-capped Chickadee .
