Northwest Minnesota Birding Report- Thursday, September 16, 2010

This is the Northwest Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, September 16, 2010 sponsored by the Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce. You may also hear this report by calling (218)847-5743 or 1-800-433-1888.

There is no doubt about it - fall is here and moving fast. Migration has really picked up, and we are saying goodbye to many species until next spring. In a day or so, most of the flowers will be gone also, and leaves are really starting to get their fall colors.

On September 13, Beth Siverhus reported the first SNOW GEESE flying over Warroad in Roseau County.

Sandy Aubol in East Grand Forks , Polk County, reported OSPREY, BLUE-HEADED VIREO, RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET, BROWN THRASHER, ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER, YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER, MOURNING WARBLER and WHITE-THROATED SPARROW on September 13. On the 14th, WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS joined the group, and  on September 15, a BROADWINGED HAWK, and a COOPER'S HAWK flew over East Grand Forks.

Alma Ronningen in Otter Tail County, saw a RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH, and a BALTIMORE ORIOLE on September 11. On September 14, she saw a COMMON LOON and a BELTED KINGFISHER, and reported lots of EASTERN BLUEBIRDS in the area .

Thanks to Alma Ronningen, Beth Siverhus, and Sandy Aubol for their reports.
