Typically this time in the fall is the peak migration period for many songbirds. The waterfowl (ducks, geese and swans) are also starting to gather in grain fields late evenings.

The City of Crosslake recently adopted an Audubon's Bird City program! Look for more birding events in the future in the Crosslake area.
