IOS is coordinating a winter field trip to Sax-Zim Bog! For those of you that have not been following their Facebook page, many of the targeted species are being seen there this winter.

Sax-Zim Bog is about 300 square miles of not only bog, but aspen uplands, rivers, lakes, meadows, farms and even a couple towns! It is not just a giant bog, but rather a “magic mix” of habitats that boreal birds love. The Sax-Zim Bog is prime wintering habitat for Great Gray Owl, Northern Hawk Owl, White-winged Crossbill, Pine Grosbeak, Common Redpoll and Hoary Redpoll. Bobcat, Lynx, Pine Marten, and Fisher also use this habitat.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to explore this amazing habitat with a two-day guided trip from a local birding expert. Finding the many wonderful birds of this area can, at times, be difficult due to weather or a lack of area knowledge. Acquiring a local guide will provide you with your best opportunity to capture a glimpse of these magnificent creatures.

Registration for this memorable field trip is $40 for IOS members, $30 for ILYB members, and $65 for non-members. Non-IOS members will pay the $40 registration fee plus $25 for IOS membership. IOS members will be given three weeks to register prior to opening this field trip to the general birding community.

**Registration for this event is capped at 20 people!
