Thanks Richard, you should come back to MN some winter for the winter birding festival in the bog. Our bog is becoming somewhat famous in the national media.

Funny thing is what makes it a wonderful birding location is the good road system thru the wilderness combined with a lack of people. They built lots of roads and drainage ditches in the early 20th century in hopes of turning the area into a prosperous agricultural region. The farms failed and the people moved away allowing the birds to prosper. Now, with the area becoming somewhat famous more people are showing up to see the birds potentially ruining things all over again!
