Recently, the North Shore experienced a streak of bitter cold weather—and I’m sure there’s more to come—with the daytime highs remaining below zero and dropping beyond 20 below at night. If you’re someone who doesn’t tolerate the cold well, like me, then it can make for a long day, or days, cooped up inside. But those brave enough to venture outdoors captured images of the ice and snow with their cameras, reminding us that despite the bitter cold, the North Shore is a wonderful, beautiful place, all year long.

Since this is the birding issue, it seemed fitting to share a bird photo. Grand Marais photographer David Johnson recently captured this image of a snowy owl chasing off a pestering raven. To see more of his work, visit
