I found three Eurasian Collared-Doves in the southern part of Washington County this afternoon 3/8/09. They were located on Neal, just north of 100th St., at the 1st farm east of Neal, north of 100th. Two were sitting on a wire and one was on the ground feeding. They were south of the gray buildings. At one point they flew across the road and into a medium-sized conifer on the west side of the road.
At Point Douglas Park I was delighted to see the male Harlequin Duck! He was fairly close to me, so I took some decent pictures of him. There were also Greater and Lesser Scaup, Common and 1 make Red-breasted Mergansers and Redheads.
Another birder told me he saw the Gray Partridge at Joan and 180th in Dakota County today. My hour and a half vigil at dusk failed to make them materialize.
