In January 2005, I traveled to Duluth, Minnesota with a group of birdwatchers to see and experience an unprecedented irruption of owls from northern Canada. An irruption occurs every several years and is caused by a cyclical reduction in the vole population in the owls' natural range. During these years, the owls migrate to more southerly areas where food sources are more plentiful. On my trip, I saw four species of owls in one day: northern hawk-owl, great gray owl, boreal owl, and snowy owl.
Since this was a birdwatching trip, and because I was traveling with a group which was focused mainly on seeing birds, I was not able to visit or photograph many of the sights in the area, but I did take some pictures of the muskeg and forests I visited.
