Minnesota Owls  Itinerary

Trip Description

Besides Northern Hawk Owl, Great Gray Owl and Snowy Owl, northeast Minnesota is also well known for other bird species. We will make plans to find Spruce Grouse, Sharp-tailed Grouse, Ruffed Grouse, Northern Goshawk and Rough-legged Hawk. 
Occasionally, Gyrfalcons over-winter in the harbor area. Plenty of interesting gulls, like Thayer's Gull, Glaucous Gull and Iceland Gull, can be found. Winter finches, like Evening Grosbeak and Pine Grosbeak, Hoary Redpoll, Common Redpoll, Pine Siskin, White-winged Crossbill and Red Crossbill, can often be found.
