During our fall trip to the North Shore, I saw several species of migrating birds. This Horned Lark was photographed at Taconite Harbor. Horned Larks are found year-round over most of the United States. Some of them go to the northern parts of Canada to nest in the summer. They are strictly open-field birds, however, so they don’t nest in northeastern Minnesota where it is mostly wooded. Therefore, when I see them along the North Shore, I can be pretty sure they are migrating.
