Extensive searching throughout the day by multiple parties failed to  
refind the White-winged Dove at the 40th Ave West/Erie Pier area in  
Duluth, including an unsuccessful search by yours truly between 8:30  
and 9:30 AM, but at 5:35 PM this afternoon (Thursday, 8 October) the  
dove was seen in flight by Barb and Denny Martin and myself. We  
watched it fly into a stand of aspen and willows bordering a small  
pond at the northwest corner of the impoundment, and a few minutes  
later we found it perched just above eye level near the trunk of a 3  
inch dbh aspen. The bird was still in this location when we left at  
6:00 PM.

Other noteworthy sightings at the 40th Ave West/Erie Pier area today  
include a Short-eared Owl found by Kim Eckert and the Martins, and a  
stunning adult Nelson's Sparrow that flushed from a grassy area on the  
west side of the impoundment and perched in full sun, where I admired  
it for two minutes early this morning.

Thirteen species of Emberizids were seen at this location today, and a  
14th species -- Chipping Sparrow -- was found at Park Point. No one  
reported Le Conte's Sparrow or Smith's Longspur, both of which were  
seen here 10/4/2009. Below is a composite list of the highest count  
for each species seen at the 40th Ave West/Erie Pier area today.
