This is the Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, October 9th 2008.
Both a HARLEQUIN DUCK and a BLACK SCOTER were at Paradise Beach in Cook
County on the 4th. This is about 14 miles up the North Shore of Lake
Superior from Grand Marais. Two WHITE-WINGED SCOTERS and two LONG-TAILED
DUCKS were at Park Point in Duluth on the 7th and six SURF SCOTERS were
there on the 6th. Two SURF SCOTERS were at Taconite Harbor in Cook
County on the 9th.
I have a secondhand report of a PACIFIC LOON seen on the 8th at Shagawa
Lake in Ely, Cook County.
An adult PARASITIC JAEGER was toward the end of Park Point over Lake
Superior on the 5th.
A GREAT GRAY OWL was reported along the Red Lake River east of Thief
River Falls in Pennington County on October 3rd, though I have no
specific location. This is a most unusual record.
Many people are reporting migrant AMERICAN PIPITS, DARK-EYED JUNCOS,
WHITE-THROATED SPAORROWS, and LAPLAND LONGSPURS primarily in the
northern and eastern parts of the state.
The next scheduled update of this tape is Thursday, October 16th 2008.
