Judd Brink Birds of the Byway Guide

Birds of the Byway offers 54 miles of great viewing opportunities along the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway.  The spring and fall bird migrations are the best times to see a greater variety of species in good numbers.  Some of the species that can be found along the Birds of the Byway include: Loons, Eagles, Osprey, Swans, (nesting) Waterfowl, Flycatchers, Tanagers, Thrushes, Hawks, Owls, Vireos and Warblers. 

The best way to view the Birds of the Byway is with a guide who knows the area and its locations to the birds you want see or photograph.  I am looking forward in guiding you to the Birds of the Byway.
