2015 trip to Sax-Zim Bog

The most recent trip to Sax-Zim Bog in north central Minnesota provided two occasions to see the Great Grey Owl which had eluded us on the previous trips of the last two winters.  The other images are of birds we see infrequently around here save for the Black-capped Chickadee.  The birds in order of appearance are the Great Grey Owl, Pine Sisken, Black-capped Chickadee, Grey Jay, Purple Finches, and Common Redpoll.

winter’s last stand?

If this is winter’s last stand then it certainly is going out like a lamb.  While it didn’t rival some of our classic spring blizzards and the long range forecast doesn’t look all that scary, I wouldn’t mind just one more mega storm for the season.  But the below zero wind chills can go away anytime by me.
