February Membership Meeting

Greetings Birding Friends! You won't want to miss our meeting tomorrow evening at 7PM. I think at least one of Sparky's amazing videos has been shared in our newsletter in the past. He will be taking us on a virtual field trip to Sax-Zim, without worries of needing to call a tow truck. Hope you can join us. Info and the zoom link are included here..... Minnesota's Sax-Zim Bog & the "Invasion of the Vole Snatchers" After an Introduction to the Sax-Zim Bog and why it's the "magic mix" for boreal birds, we'll learn about the Invasion each winter of "vole snatchers": Great Gray Owls, Hawk Owls, Boreal Owls, Northern Shrikes, hawks, ermine, marten, fox, coyote and more survive and thrive on a diet of voles. And we'll also enjoy some HD video of these critters actually snatching voles. We'll also touch on the work of Friends of Sax-Zim Bog to preserve over 4,000 acres of bog lands for future generations of birds and birder
