I write this from the south shore of Lake Superior, not far from Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Two days ago, while casually birding the lakeshore, my wife Sarah spotted a Black-crowned Night-heron. That’s an extremely unusual bird to find as far north as the Superior shore. We put word out on the e-mail lists, and before long a group of the Upper Peninsula’s intrepid birders had added the heron to their list. It was a lifer for at least one, and a new “UP bird” for many of them.
