There are an estimated 46 million birdwatchers in the United States and more than 700 species of migratory birds, according to a 2007 US Fish and Wildlife Service report. Recent estimates from a Birding in the United Statesstudy indicate that as high as 84% of non-consumptive recreation users are birders.
Nearly 100 resources and points of interest have been identified along the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway route. Some of the spots are well known such as the Uppgaard Wildlife Management Area or the Crosslake Historic Log Village. Others are not as commonly recognized.
Each of the quarterly issues of Inkslinger will highlight one of these lesser known Byway points of interest.
