Professionally Guided Birding Expedition

Ely is one of the best birding spots in Northern Minnesota!  There have been 318 species identified in the Superior National Forest.  Of those 220 are regular visitors or residents and 164 species are know to breed here.  The area is heavily forested with about 90% of the land in natural vegetation. There are almost 2,000 lakes and 9% of the national forest is water.  

Blue Heron itself is a well-known stop on birders routes.  We daily see an uncommon number of birds species.  You may add to your life-list while eating breakfast!

Your package:
Check in to Blue Heron Tuesday between 3 & 5.  

On Wednesday early (with a thermos of coffee) you will join local ornithologist, Bill Tefft, for a 2 hour birding exploration; then return to Blue Heron in time for a well deserved breakfast.  The remainder of the day is yours to paddle or hike(or take a nap).
This package is available only mid-April thru mid October
