Northwest Minnesota Birding Report- Thursday, March 8, 2012

This is the Northwest Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, March 8, 2012 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.

This week the birds seem to be just waiting for the first real warmth, and that is promised for next week. Those of us  " up north" are envious of those wonderful early reports of migrants from the southern part of the state.

Rick Gjervold was near Rothsay in Wilkin County on March 1 where he saw several RING-NECKED PHEASANTS, two ROUGH-LEGGED HAWKS, HORNED LARKS, and a NORTHERN SHRIKE.

From Hubbard County, Marshall Howe reported  8 DARK-EYED JUNCOS on March 2, and a SHARP-SHINNED HAWK in Dorset on March 5.

Sandy Aubol in East Grand Forks , Polk County, is still reporting an EASTERN TOWHEE, two HARRIS'S SPARROWS, and a NORTHERN CARDINAL. Other species seen there this week included MERLIN, and SHARP-SHINNED HAWK.

Zeann Linder and Shelley Steva saw two AMERICAN ROBINS in Thief River Falls, Pennington County on March 3.

Thanks to Marshall Howe, Rick Gjervold, and Sandy Aubol for their reports.

Please report bird sightings to Jeanie Joppru by email, no later than Thursday each week, at [email protected]mncable.net 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, March 15, 2012
