Sax-Zim Bog Dickcissel!

Thanks to a birding report from Jan & Larry K. I learned that a few Dickcissels had been seen on Racek Road in the Bog. Although the last two mornings have been blustery, dark and at times wet, I could not resist the opportunity to see this bird which is rarely seen in northern Minnesota.

Both of the last two days I have seen multiple Dickcissels singing while perched in the bushes just sound of Racek Road (about 400 yards in from Cty 29/229). While visiting the bog, make certain to swing just a little further north and enjoy the Sandhill Cranes which are raising a family in the wildflowers fields just below South Overton Road.

Sandhill Crane  … I’ll give you a daisy, a day!  Did I mention the wildflowers are blooming in northern Minnesota?!

Dickcissel … Singing in the rain!
