Decided I needed to do some exploring this morning, and I was rewarded with finding some American Golden Plovers. A small flock of about 15 birds was at the Beaver Bay sewage treatment ponds just inland from Lake Superior on hwy #4.
Finding these plovers was an “exclamation mark” near the end of a beautiful drive inland from Lake Superior along various back roads. A worthy explore is to drive northeast from Finland on Lake County #7 (Cramer Rd) as far as the Trestle Inn (about 20 miles from Minnesota #1). This road snakes through a gorgeous river valley. The Fall foliage is nearing peak color and was gorgeous in the early morning sun … Uff dah!
