This is the Duluth Birding Report for Thursday, April 19th, 2007
sponsored by the Minnesota Ornithologists' Union.
A EURASIAN TREE SPARROW was photographed by Anne and Allan Bier at their
home in Virginia on the 15th, but it has not been seen since. Deb
Buria-Falkowski reported an adult and first-cycle GLAUCOUS GULL on the
12th on Bailey's Lake in Virginia. Deb also had four RED CROSSBILLS on
the 19th at the Mesabi Range campus in Virginia.
Shawn Zierman relocated the TOWNSEND'S SOLITAIRE on the 13th and 14th in
Duluth at the Park Point recreational area, just north of the
playground. He also found a flock of about 100 BOHEMIAN WAXWINGS in the
area. At least 25 were still present on the 16th. Jan Green saw a flock
of 25 at the Duluth Civic Center on the 17th.
Dave Carman and others saw a RED-SHOULDERED HAWK and an early
BROAD-WINGED HAWK fly over the West Skyline Hawk Count site below Enger
Tower on the 14th. They also saw 12 AMERICAN WHITE PELICANS on the 15th.
Three LONG-TAILED DUCKS were still present at Burlington Bay in Two
Harbors on the 17th. A few GRAY JAYS are still being seen at feeders
along the North Shore in St. Louis, Lake, and Cook counties. SANDHILL
CRANES were reported from several locations in St. Louis County during
the past week.
WILD TURKEYS were reported during the past two weeks at feeders in
Duluth's upper Woodland neighborhood, Fern Avenue near St. Scholastica,
and in Lakewood Township. Although the species is expanding northward in
the state, there is a good chance these are escaped or released birds.
Recent spring arrivals in the area include TREE SWALLOW and HERMIT
THRUSH on the 14th, and WILSON'S SNIPE on the 17th.
The next scheduled update of this report will be on Thursday, April
