This is the Northwest Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, January 10,
2008 sponsored by the Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce. You

This has been a mild week in the northwest , but not much melting has
occurred. A little freezing fog has glazed the sidewalks and secondary
roads, and with little traffic, they require careful driving, and not
many instant "birding stops".

RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH, BOHEMIAN WAXWINGS, and PINE GROSBEAKS north of
