Bird Watching & Birding in the BWCA(W)
and Gunflint Trail areas of Minnesota

Due to the increased popularity of Birding and Bird Watching as a leisure activity we have dedicated a page of our website to Birding in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Gunflint Trail areas of northern Minnesota.

This page is a work in progress.  Check back soon to see how we are doing on the Birding and Bird Watching page of the Loon Lake Lodge resort website.
