Tomorrow morning we're finally headed to the Bog. Ruthie is picking me up in the morning for our trip Up North to the Sax Zim Bog Festival of Birds. I've been to that area a couple of times before and can't wait to get back. One of the field trip destinations is the Hedbom logging road which is only about 20 miles north of Hasty Brook. The field trip Ruthie and I signed up for on Saturday includes a trip to Duluth Harbor and I'm hoping we'll stop at the Duluth airport where a Snowy Owl has been sighted many times this winter. I'd be thrilled to see the the Snowy Owl but my all time favorite bird sighting was when I saw a Snowy in Duluth in January, 2007.
Here's my bird wish list:
great gray owl
Really, I just want to meet Ruthie, relax, see birds, relax, meet new friends and greet old friends, laugh, relax, have fun and relax. An added bonus is that we're stopping on the way back down to the Cities to visit Deb from the Sand Creek Almanac. It'll be a regular Minnesota Blogger's Convention!
Wish us luck!
I hope I bought enough hand-warmers!
