This weekend has been active with pretty much what you would expect for this time of year. A significant number of Fox Sparrow have moved into the area with the highest number at Rapids Lake MVNWR on Friday. White-throated and Lincoln's Sparrow were the only other migrant sparrows over the weekend There were 2 Winter Wrens at Rapids Lake on Friday and 1 at Carver Park this morning as well as a few House Wrens and a Marsh Wren at Chaska Lake. A Bonaparte's Gull was at Chaska Lake yesterday with a couple of Ring-billed. Cormorant numbers have dropped, but Pelicans are still passing through as there was a flock of about 50 flying over Carver Park this morning. Both Golden-crowned and Ruby-crowned Kinglets were fairly common over the past few days. There was still a Rose-breasted Grosbeak and a Catbird hanging around at Carver Park. Warblers over the past few days have been pretty much the same wherever I went: Orange-crowned, Yellow-rumped, Palm, and Common Yellowthroat.
