Birding in Minnesota:
Situated in the center of the North American continent, and along the Central and Mississippi River flyways, Minnesota is in a prime location for bird movement. Additionally, three major ecoregions (western prairies, northern coniferous forests, and southern deciduous forests) converge here, providing a variety of habitat for a range of species found in few other states. Regular vagrants from all corners, and nesting birds often find the end of their range--be it from the north, south, east, or west--here. Lastly, one of the world's largest lakes--Lake Superior--is a habitat unto itself, while also serving as one of the continent's best places to observe fallout during migration. In Minnesota, you really can just about see it all!
