Saw several Snow Buntings along the road Thursday at Crane Lake in northern
St Louis County.

2 Surf Scoters were seen on the lake and a Black-backed Woodpecker in the
woods. The BB Woodpecker was a female and vocalized quite a bit - it was
interesting to hear the difference in their call from the Hairy and Downey
woodpeckers. Maybe the numerous small forest fires that occurred up here
this summer has attracted larger numbers of BB Woodpeckers -  have seen
several since Labor Day weekend.

This morning a Mourning Dove showed up in the backyard - not usually seen up
here in the northwoods.
