You know Minnesota as the land of 10,000 lakes, but birding in Minnesota is just as popular as the lakes.
Bird watching in Minnesota is something you can do in virtually every part of the state. Birders more often do their thing in the open countryside or in the forests, but you may have to wander into the cities to find some species.
This is the first of what I hope will be 50 articles on birding in each state of the United States. I’m starting with birding in Wisconsin because it’s my home state. I’ve lived here all my life except for a handful of years in Nebraska.
