This evening in Grand Marais, I found a Rock Wren at the municipal campground. I watched it for several minutes on a large dirt pile near the yellow maintenance garages, then a vehicle went by and sent it over by the large hole in the ground surrounded by snow fence where I was unable to relocate it.
Other fun in Grand Marais:
The campground was quite birdy with a flock of 13 Horned Larks and 2 Lapland Longspurs near where I saw the Rock Wren. Numerous sparrows around including a few Clay-colored and White-crowned near the maintenance garages and a Fox Sparrow on Artist's Point. I saw a Magnolia Warbler and Palm Warblers near the garages as well.
Lots of Golden-crowned Kinglets and Brown Creepers on Artist's Point as well as a Blackpoll Warbler and a probable Northern Goshawk that flew straight away so I couldn't get a good look. Horned Grebes were in the harbor and I saw Red-necked Grebes the other day, but no loons or big lake ducks anywhere.
I also got a brief glimpse of what appeared to be a small flock of Snow Geese flying over the Holiday, but it was tough to make an ID while craning my neck to look out the back window of the vehicle.
I stopped at the Spruce Creek ponds last night and nothing was happening there. Shawn Conradhttp://users.2z.net/itasca_chippewa_birding/
