Thank you normcar for the feedback on my photos! The Northern Goshawk photo was taken at Hawks Ridge in Duluth, MN, a place known for its migrating raptors (as well as other birds).

If you like exploring the wilds and photographing birds, you should look for Great Grey Owl. MN is a great place to find them and this looks to be an "Echo" year. Last year was an invasion and this year more than usually are coming back. Not as good as last year, but they are still out there.

Lets see if I can dig up some locations. Found some.
Look in Pine County, Aitkin County, and Sax-Zim

This might be helpful, but I don't know how old it is:

Look in the lower right of that map and you'll see directions to get there.

Thanks Eric S for looking up info on the owl invasion. I actually saw one of the Great Grey Owls in January of this year. I've attached a photo of him.

They are great birds, aren't they? I went to Canada in Feb and saw 13+ of them in one day. Along with a Northern Hawk Owl, a Boreal Owl and a Saw-Whet Owl. A day I won't soon forget.

If you did around over the next few months, you should be able to find more Great Greys. They are definitely coming back to Northern MN.
