Hi Jim, I probably won't be able to make it down there tomorrow. I have some work to do in the morning. If I finish up early enough maybe I'll take a ride down. There was a Boreal chickadee spotted today near by ribs1 so you might get lucky and have one show up. If you come up Hwy 53 it might be worth it to take Lake Nichols Rd across to Hwy 7. A great gray owl was spotted there on Friday. Its been a popular road in the past for them as well.

Well, with the word out, looks like I'll be taking most of my S-Z Bog trips on weekdays to avoid the crowds of weekend birders. smilesmile

Good thing no one knows where that other ribs site is, Jonny, or that one would be overrun, too.

I here you Steve!....I met Jim there earlier this morning (pure coincidence really) not much "action" for sure but then again it takes time for it to become "established"...We watched 2 gray jays and that was about it.....Jim continued on to the "weasel Site"...I went back to Hibbing via Hwy #5....Heading to "Carey Lake" in a few minutes to where I through some black oil for the chickadees yesterday....

Thanks for the report, man. I reckon that quiet site will get going pretty good once birds find it. It held a lot of woodpeckers, siskins, redpolls and chickadees last year.

I got there around 8 and set up my blind and was set by 8:15 and sat for a hour and only had a red squirrel. It will get going in due time but ribs 2 had plenty of activity.

Well, ribs2 had a few more days to build activity than ribs1, and I expect that has made the difference. Ribs1 will for sure put out over time, considering all the activity it had last year.

Well, I'm sure there has to be another spot where everyone is wishing you a Happy Birthday but since I ain't finding it, Happy Birthday Steve! You must be what, almost 40? Okay, 35. Maybe go out and celebrate with some ribs tonite! grin

Thanks man! They nailed my birthday over on the photo sharing board.

I actually celebrated all day today in the Bog, partly at ribs2 (boreal chickadees, b-c chickadees, northern shrike, gray jays, common redpolls, downy woodpeckers) and partly along Lake Nichols Road, where jayinMN and I coralled a great gray owl just after sundown.

Yes!
