Winter in the Northland is a great time for bird-watching.
Michelle Weegman, who lives near Holyoke, Minn., writes that the Weegmans are having a great time watching eight pairs of pine grosbeaks that have been visiting their feeders since November.
She shared a couple of pictures:
Beautiful birds, aren’t they? They appear so delicate, but they have to be hardy to get through a Minnesota winter. They actually spend their summers farther north.
With a cold spell predicted to set in over the weekend, those of us with feeders should make sure we keep food in them.
