Ben Douglas has a cool idea. While as a birder I am not into keeping lists, I love folks who have interesting and unique ideas. Ben’s idea is he will bird every state park in Minnesota during 2018! For most people, including me this means I had to look up how many parks this effort entails (66 parks). Given Minnesota is 407 miles from North to South, and 360 miles from East to West, this will be a lot of land to cover … particularly as a lot of the driving to reach these parks will be on rural roads. Browse to Ben’s blog, The Big Douglas, and bookmark it (or subscribe). If you have installed my Minnesota Birding News App, his posts will be automatically presented to you!
