Few details about the upcoming MOU Mille Lacs trip on Saturday, October 

* We will meet at the Dairy Queen on 169, just north of Onamia and south of 
the lake.  We have management permission to park at the back of lot and 
carpool together.

* The trip will last from 8:00 to approximately 12:00.  It will proceed in 
light rain and or fog - intense rain or fog could, of course, cause changes. 
Nathan and I birded the lake this Saturday, and spent some time chasing 
sparrows and passerines until the fog lifted around 10:30.

* We've had a couple of cancellations, so the trip is no longer full - could 
probably take 3-5 additional people.

* We will be scanning the lake, probably from Onamia to Wealthwood, and 
perhaps take a side trip (if necessary) into a surrounding wildlife area or 
state park (latter requires a sticker).  Loons tend to be the stars in 
mid-October, and Red-throated or Pacific are a strong possibility - but not 
a guarantee.

* You may wish to wear some orange, there could be some hunting in the area 
(but it's generally light in the birding zones).

* Look forward to seeing you there!
