Happy Spring and Happy Birding! It’s great to be back again to post the weekly birding reports for the beautiful Brainerd lakes area.  My name is Judd Brink Owner/Guide of MN Backyard Birds.

Be bear Aware!  Reports are now coming in that bears have damaged some feeders in the lakes area. Now is a good time to get in the habit of taking feeders down and stored inside overnight.  Bears have an excellent sense of smell!

I hope you will enjoy and follow the weekly birding reports from Visitbrainerd.com.  If you want to share a photo or have a unique bird sighting, please email them to info@birdminnesota.com.  Thank you!
