      Minnesota and perhaps in the Midwest. What birds can be found or expect to
      be found during this festival? Take a look at the bird list!
      . Sharp-tailed Grouse
      . Snowy Owl
      . Northern Hawk Owl
      . Great Gray Owl
      . American Three-toed Woodpecker

      Not a bad list of birds and the list above also includes some of the top ten
      most wanted birds in the ABA area! The festival will have to wonderful
      speakers, Laura Erickson and Dave Benson. Both of speakers are authors of
      books. Dave's new book, "Owls of the North: A Naturalist Companion" which
      covers 10 species of northern owls. Laura's Erickson's book "101 Ways to
      Help Birds" is a wonderful book, that informs birders of all levels on how
      to help and protect birds. There will be several field trips held on
      Saturday & Sunday led by some outstanding local birders like Kim Eckert, Jim
      Lind, Dave Benson, Laura Erickson, Warren Nelson and several other local
      birders who really know their birds.
      Here is another list of birds of possibilities that can be found in and
