During the winter the majority of our local bird population migrates south to warmer climate and a better food supply. A few species of birds stick it out and brave the winter here in the Upper Peninsula. If you have a feeder out, you are probably familiar with many of the birds that stick it out such as chickadees, blue jays, and nut hatches. A few people, me included, have even seen robins this year. One bird that sticks around and probably doesn't get the attention it deserves is the Common Raven.
