On the trip we predominantly focused on; The Sax-Zim Bog, Superior National Forest, Superior Wisconsin, and Two Harbor's Minnesota.
We also had numerous Ruffed Grouse around the bog, often eating buds at dusk .
The Northern Hawk Owl we got to see put on quite a show, grabbing a Pygmy Shrew literally next to Michael's boots.
Some birds required professional effort, here Dave "peanut-butter " Larson tries to entice Boreal Chickadee.
Bohemian Waxwings , large flock that we chased down along Lake Superior
Lots of Red Squirrels in the bog, favorite food of Pine Martin. We didn't get to see any Pine Martins but we saw their tracks.
Amazing trip to the bog. Thanks to Dave, Dave and Susan and everyone else who attended. I will most definitely be going back at some point.
