FW: Northwest Minnesota Birding Report-Thursday January 20, 2011

Have you counted our bird houses? Your kids have. In the past, the bird house scavenger hunt is a hit among our younger guests. Here are a couple pics of our famous East Silent Resort bird houses (Most of these delightful houses are made by Grandpa Donnelly of Independence, IA…painted by Grandma Donnelly J). Enjoy!

This is the Northwest Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, January 20, 2011 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.

The cold is really settling in as the full moon brightly shines over the fresh white snow. The mercury is dropping fast tonight as I compose this report. The temperatures the last few days has kept many folks inside and the birds seem to be hunkering down also.

Beth Siverhus in Roseau County reported PILEATED WOODPECKER, CEDAR WAXWINGS, BOHEMIAN WAXWINGS,  PINE SISKINS,  and WHITE-WINGED CROSSBILLS this week in Warroad, and at the home of Carol Parker there was one DARK-EYED JUNCO and some COMMON REDPOLLS

Connie Cox, reporting from southern Clearwater County, observed RED-BELLIED WOODPECKER, NORTHERN SHRIKE, PINE GROSBEAKS, and a flock of 30 EVENING GROSBEAKS at her feeders five miles north of Itasca State Park this week.

Thanks to Beth Siverhus , Carol Parker, and Connie Cox for their reports.

Please report bird sightings to Jeanie Joppru by email, no later than Thursday each week, at [email protected] OR call the Detroit Lakes Chamber's toll free number: 1-800-542-3992. Detroit Lakes area birders please call 847-9202. Please include the county where the sighting took place. The next scheduled update of this report is Thursday, January 27, 2011.
