Observation: number of migrating species significantly less than last
year - down 24 species (3/31) compared to 2007. Ponds just opening up, few
duck species in the Sherburne County, but not in Mille Lacs County yet.
MIA's include Common Loon, Tundra Swans, both teal, wigeons, grebes,
vultures, shorebirds besides Killdeer (which have been here less than a
week), Herring Gulls, E. Phoebes, Tree Swallows, most sparrows (Nathan has
both Fox & Chipping, I have neither), Lapland Longspurs, and Rusty
Know they're coming, just adding my observations to the mix. Last year was,
perhaps, unique. Numbers are actually consistent with 2006.
