Recap from our Explorer Network trip to the UP for Birding

We had a great time birding in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula this past weekend! We found 38 species including eight snowy owls, two short-eared owls, one rough-legged hawk, 20 bald eagles, 40+ sharp-tailed grouse, 40+ common redpoll, 18 evening grosbeak, and 1 pine grosbeak! Our travels had us finding birds in places like Rudyard, Pickford, Dafter, Hulbert and Sault Ste Marie. With over 1,000 miles put on the van, we came back to ODC tired but full of stories and a good list from birding in the UP in February!
