Tom & Carol-Ann Bloom—2018 Big Half Year

Tom & Carol-Ann Bloom Big Half Year—BIRDS & WILD CRITTERS OF SMITHVILLE

Donate for my Big Half Year HERE

OUR BIG HALF YEAR: “Birds and Wild Critters in Smithville” (because nobody knows where Smithville is!)
But we’ll include Morgan Park and Riverside areas.  We want to demonstrate the fine avian visitors/residents in our little area.  Remember, the Summer Tanager was here in Smithville last November!
ABOUT US: We’ve been birding Sax-Zim Bog for over 30 years. Our kids would be looking out the car windows watching for birds, bears, and moose as we munched on sandwiches, wandering the back roads trying not to get lost!  At the Meadowlands grocery store, I’d sign the Bird Journal and list birds we saw!  We were always impressed by the wild uniqueness of the Bog and worried that someday it may be lost to logging. It’s one of the natural gems of Minnesota; and Friends of Sax-Zim Bog is working hard to preserve it.
