Attention Birding Enthusiasts!
A big *!Thank You!* goes out to Grace Schoessow, Patty Ross, David Hart, Sam Gaier, Jack & Nancy Griner, Allen Hasken, Nana & Pops, Royal Moore, Abbie Saltz, Jen Braunstein, Lindsey Sipes, Caitlin Mae Burke, Josh Penn, the Miller Family, Bob Hauschildt, Rik Stewart, Paul Densmore, Virginia Siegel, Tyler Hamby, Heidi Clayton, Paul Dunigan, Chris Wolf, Kent Walker, and the many anonymous bird-lovers who have supported my field observations of the Mississippi River's avian wildlife.
My binoculars are never far from reach, and here are some of the many birds that I have sighted in Minnesota over the past few days. It is truly a birder's paradise here in the Headwaters region of the Mississippi River's watershed. We have seen ospreys fight off bald eagles, loons running on water, and kingfishers diving just off our starboard bow. There are so many of these living dinosaurs flying, floating, and flitting about! And so, without further ado, here is what has been sighted thus far:
Eastern Wood Pewee
**Some kind of Grosbeak... Rose-breasted?**
Great Blue Heron
**Some kind of sandpiper**
Be sure to check back periodically for more updates! Thank you so much for your support, and I sincerely hope this message finds you and yours well and happy! Know that I will be sharing all my bird sighting with you over the weeks to come.
Best wishes & confusion to your enemies! Forrest S. Schoessow
P.S. I apologize for not including the scientific names of the species I have logged. I cannot remember all of them and it seems odd to include this for only a handful of species.
