After a 4am start and about 7hrs in airports we finally made it to Duluth. It's the weekend of the Sax Zim Bog Winter Birding Festival. Confidence is high for amazing birds such as Great Grey Owl, Northern Hawk Owl, Boreal Chickadee and many more!
We got in so late that we didn't have time for but a quick run to Canal Park on the Lake Superior waterfront. We thought we could catch a gull or 2 and admittedly Barrow's Goldeneye flashed through my mind. You know, like the ant and the rubber tree plant... Our strongest asset is that we have no preconception of what it takes to get over 748 birds in one year. We figure we will just go out and see them.
And really, spending time with views like this; does it really matter if we don't? Lake Superior waterfront!
