This is the Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, April 19th 2007.
On April 15th, that group of seven WHOOPING CRANES was seen again as
they flew past DNR employee Judy Welu about three miles southwest of
Detroit Lakes, between Fox Lake and Lake Sally in Becker County.
On the 15th, Anne and Allan Bier photographed a EURASIAN TREE SPARROW in
their yard in Virginia, St. Louis County. The bird has not been back,
but if it is seen again, this report will be updated.
Paul Budde reports that the GREEN-TAILED TOWHEE was still visiting the
feeder in the town of Mountain Lake, Cottonwood County, on the 14th.
>From state highway 60, exit onto 3rd Avenue and drive to 10th Street.
Turn north on 10th street and drive to the edge of town to a cemetery
and lake on the left. The feeder is in front of the pale green house,
which is the second to the last building on the right side of the road.
A large group of AMERICAN AVOCETS was found on the 14th about six miles
east of Owatonna and just northwest of Rice Lake State Park along Steele
County Road 19.
A CAROLINA WREN was at the Kunkel WMA in Mille Lacs County on the 14th.
Check the western side of the main trail near the small pond.
While I have received reports of both Veery and Swainson's Thrush
recently, these would both be exceptionally early records and no details
were provided. Other observations called-in include BLACK-CROWNED
NIGHT-HERON, SWAINSON'S HAWK, VIRGINIA RAIL, MARBLED GODWIT, BONAPARTE'S
GULL, YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER, HERMIT THRUSH, ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER,
LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSH, and CHESTNUT-COLLARED LONGSPUR.
The next scheduled update of this tape is Thursday, April 26th 2007.
