Living in Zim, I always check for birds…today 2/10/14.. I saw 2 different snow owls and took pictures of them…one was off hwy#27, south on Greenfield Ln…on east side sitting in balsam trees…the 2nd one was on the west side of Hwy # 7 across from the sod farm…it was sitting on a pole next to the railroad tracks..

Seen in Ramsey, MN on Jan. 20, while looking for the Snowy Owls. Couldn’t believe my eyes!! Lived in the North Metro my whole life and have never seen one this far South.

Can’t submit other contact form..

My husband and I had planned to attend this year. unfortunately he was diagnosed with a brain tumor that took away the mobility on his right side. He can still walk with a cane but needs assistance. Is there any way for the festival to still be worthwhile for him? I understand that birding requires foot work but I just wanted to see if you though there was anyway
it would work.


(sorry to post here but it kept saying ‘fatal error’ when I tried to post with the contact form.

Great Grey – Minnetonka


Just spotted a Great Grey Owl. She dropped down out of a tree about 15ft in front of me into the fresh snow. She flew back up into the trees and perched nicely. Watch her for a good 15-20 minutes.

Picture is pretty dark due to dawn lighting and snow.

Amazing bird…..pretty incredible!!

Location: 2400 Jordan Ave, Minnetonka, MN 55305
Birders welcome.

Great Gray Owls















Great Gray Owls are being seen in the bog along the McDavitt Rd in Sax-Zim Bog. Drive about 2.5 miles north of the Sax Road and begin looking for these owls at dusk and dawn.
