Being located in the middle of the Superior National Forest in the Lutsen Tofte area, you never know what kind of wildlife you will see from one day to the next.
Yesterday afternoon we had an unexpected visitor at the Bluefin Bay Guest Services building. This baby Boreal Owl was found resting right outside of our Activities Department.
Though it seems like an unlikely resting place for an owl to be on the ground, it did not appear to be injured in any way and later flew to a nearby tree to resume its rest.
This time of year owls are in the midst of a migration period, thus being on the move a lot.
