Mystery bird(er)

Jan Dunlap, author of the Birder Murder mystery series, will be at Wild Birds Unlimited in Duluth from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. this Thursday (Oct. 21) to sign books and visit with birders and readers.

Dunlap, who is from Chaska, Minn., writes books featuring “a Minnesota birder with the knack of finding bodies along with the birds,” in her words.

That could sure ruin a trip to Sax-Zim bog.

The third and latest in Dunlap’s series is called “A Bobwhite Killing.” More information is available at her

Bob Heller at Wild Birds Unlimited is host for the event. The store is 1709 Mall Drive, across from Miller Hill Mall.
