This is the Duluth Birding Report for Thursday, August 1, sponsored by the Minnesota Ornithologists' Union.
Mike Steffes has counted as many as 13 BLACK-THROATED BLUE WARBLERS still singing on Moose Mountain near Lutsen on the North Shore.
Jim Lind reported a WILSON'S PHALAROPE at the MNDOT garage in Illgen City on the 27th.
Kim Eckert reported WHITE-WINGED CROSSBILLS from two locations in the Sax-Zim bog on July 26th. The first was on Cty Rd 52, 1.2 miles west of Owl Ave. and the second was on the Blue Spruce Road (Cty Rd 211), just north of Hwy 133.
He also found a singing CONNECTICUT WARBLER at the same location on Cty Rd 52. BOREAL CHICKADEES were on Owl Avenue, .4 of a mile south of 52. Kim also found LeConte's Sparrows, Yellow-bellied Flycatchers, and Mourning Warblers still singing in Sax-Zim.
This report will be updated when there is enough information to report. With fall migration picking up, I hope that will be each Thursday.
