This is the Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, April 15th, 2010.

On April 15th, there was a report of a possible BEAN GOOSE at a wetland
near the Madrena WMA of Lac qui Parle County. This is on the west side
of 211th Avenue and about a quarter mile south of US Highway 75. The
bird, which was associating with about a dozen GREATER WHITE-FRONTED
GEESE has not been seen since.

I have a report of a WHITE-WINGED DOVE from Waconia, Carver County, but
am waiting to hear back from the home owner about visitors.

On April 10th, Bob Ekblad reported a NORTHERN MOCKINGBIRD in Olmsted
County just southeast of Rochester. Directions are to take US Highway 52
south of I-90 to County Road 7. Go south on 7 for a couple of miles and
turn left turn on Mill Creek Road. The bird was in the trees lining the
driveway of the first house past the cemetery.

In Nicollet County, Bob Dunlap found four SMITH'S LONGSPURS at a WMA one
mile north of the town of Nicollet on the east side of highway 111 on
April 9th. The birds were in the grassy area between the first wetland
and the farm fields east of the parking lot.

Three LONG-TAILED DUCKS were found by Ron Erpelding at Taconite Harbor,
Cook County, on the 14th. A few BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHERS have been
reported in the last few days in the Twin Cities area, as have

The next scheduled update of this tape is Thursday, April 22nd, 2010.
