Days 285 to 288: Winter Bird Friends

While most of the usual suspects have headed south for the winter, some birds including waterfowl remain with us up here in the frozen Northland. As area lakes start to ice over, if one finds the open water it can often be amazing the density of ducks and geese one will find. Our first snow have now fallen, and we are poised for our first winter storm come Monday. Here are just a few feathered friends who have decided to hang around northern Minnesota for the moment.
