After a couple of weeks birding in Mexico, we were allowed to enter the USA for our mad dash across 6 states in search of some simply stunning birds. We began in Minnesota nailing Henslow's Sparrow at Murphy-Hanrehan Park, before visiting the famous SaxZim Bog, where Connecticut Warbler stole the show from Great Grey Owl, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, Dickcissel and LeConte's Sparrow. A quick detour into Wisconsin for Easter Whip-poor-will followed before spending several days birding the magnificent prairies of North Dakota. Here, Sharp-tailed Grouse, Nelson's Sparrow, Sprague's Pipit, Bobolinks, Chestnut-collared Longspur and lakes full of shorebirds, American Black Terns and Franklin's Gulls were amongst the highlights.. Moving into the prairies of Montana we found Greater Sage Grouse and Baird's Sparrow, before reaching the majestic scenery of Glacier National Park. Where to begin! This is an awesome place where White-tailed Ptarmigan, Hooded Merganser, Harlequin Duck, Lewis's, Black-backed and American Three-toed Woodpeckers, Red-naped Sapsucker, Calliope Hummingbird, Pacific Wren and Boreal Chickadee were just some of the stars. Heading south we eventually found Dusky Grouse, Western Screech Owl and Evening Grosbeak before reaching Idaho. Here our main target was Cassia Crossbill, which we duly got in the Albion Mountains, along with Williamson's Sapsucker, Flammulated Owl and Northern Saw-Whet Owl. Finally, around Salt Lake City, Utah we got our bogey bird - Black Rosy-Finch, along with Grey Vireo, Grey Flycatcher and Juniper Titmouse to round off a superb and absolutely epic USA road trip!
