Bohemian Waxwings, Milaca Hiking Trail (Mille Lacs County) this morning; Ann 
Lake (Sherburne County) on Tuesday.

I can remember having to travel to Palisade the winter I moved here 
(2003-2004) to find them - interesting differential this year.

Area has little open water (Mille Lacs Lake, smaller lakes & sewage ponds 
all frozen tight; some open areas along Rum & St. Francis Rivers, but not 
many) - this, combined with the snow & cold - has made Mille Lacs & 
Sherburne Counties rather quiet.  Ann Lake seems to have the most activity 
over the last 7-10 days:  Townsend's Solitaire (not consistent), Goshawk, 
Common Raven, few Purple Finches & Pine Siskins (no other winter finches to 
speak of).  Mille Lacs County does have flocks of Snow Buntings, which are 
always enjoyable.

Good birding to all!
