Friday afternoon I found an immature Red-shouldered Hawk in Eagan by the
train crossing on Nichols Rd/ Black Dog Road.
Saturday morning was cold. I led a bird walk at Old Cedar Bridge. The best
bird we found was a cold and cooperative Eastern Phoebe. Also good looks at
Hooded Mergansers and distant looks at Greater Scaup. After everyone
retreated into their warm cars, I headed toward the west and found:
Pileated Woodpecker (pair) - very tame. observed as near as 15 feet.
both Kinglets in good numbers; many singing
Winter Wren at second of the long board walks. I got the best look I have
had in years. It paused and look at me for almost a second. Then it sang
its long luscious song.
Fox Sparrows - a flock of a half dozen or more
