This morning, I spotted an adult male Barrow's Goldeneye among a flock
of Common Goldeneye and other divers in the Duluth harbor between 31st
and 32nd Street. After about 45 minutes, it flew towards the
Recreation Area and was refound by Mike Hendrickson near the bus
turnaround at 43rd Street. We also saw a Western Grebe, redpolls, and
White-winged Crossbills at the Recreation Area, and all three species
of scoters in the harbor. An adult Red-throated Loon was on Lake
Superior between 12th Street and 16th Street.
Kim Eckert and Jim Lind are with a group along the North Shore this
weekend. They refound the Summer Tanager in Two Harbors at a new
location (South Avenue and First Street). They also found a Red-
throated Loon in Agate Bay near the ore docks.
