Product Description

Ask a roomful of birders their favorite season and you probably won’t hear many praises of winter. As temperatures drop, the appeal of venturing outdoors for extended periods of time diminishes for all but the most dedicated photographers and birdwatchers. However, winter provides unique benefits for the bold and bundled. Leafless trees make for easier spotting and white snowy environments make for beautiful settings for photographs. Best of all, winter welcomes its own seasonal lineup of characters, if you know where to look. This article introduces a handful of locations known for their winter bird offerings—from opportunities to encounter a rare arctic species to witnessing awe-inspiring mass congregations.

Sax-Zim Bog, Minnesota

Legendary among birders for its resident population of Great Gray Owls, Sax-Zim Bog consists of 300 square miles of winter wonderland in Northern Minnesota. Comprising a diverse mix of habitats ranging from tamarack bog to maple forests, Sax-Zim serves as a winter home for a variety of northern species such as Hoary Redpolls, White-winged Crossbills, Northern Shrikes, Northern Hawk Owls, and the occasional Snowy Owl. Permanent residents include Boreal Chickadees, Sharp-tailed Grouse, Black-backed Woodpeckers, Canada Jays, American Three-toed Woodpeckers, and Pine Grosbeaks. Don’t forget to dress warmly because temperatures regularly drop below zero and can get as extreme as -50 degrees Fahrenheit.
