On both Saturday & Sunday this past weekend, Oct 30-31, a female- 
plumaged Harlequin Duck was seen in Grand Marais, Cook Co., and 2 imm  
Red-throated Loons appeared there today, Nov 1. The Harlequin Duck was  
seen by >20 birders participating in the so-called annual "Muffin Run"  
field trip up the North Shore: on Saturday afternoon it was in the  
harbor near the E breakwater, and on Sunday morning it was relocated  
just outside the harbor by the W breakwater. And the Red-throated  
Loons were seen by 5 of us this morning as they swam and dove on L  
Superior not too far out from the W breakwater. Viewing conditions at  
the time were excellent with calm winds, a smooth lake surface, and  
the sun to the E with the loons mostly to the SW of us.

Other highlights seen up the N Shore this past weekend by our group  

- 2-3 Surf Scoters, Grand Marais
- 32 White-winged Scoters, near Five Mile Rock; also 1 at Taconite  
- 20 Black Scoters, Paradise Beach; also 2 in Two Harbors and 1 in  
Grand Marias
- Long-tailed Ducks, various locations, with largest flock near Five  
Mile Rock

near 1st St. & 3rd Ave.

Finally, Barb & Denny Martin just called to report they relocated the  
Pacific Loon reported last week in Duluth. It was on the lake side of  
Park Point out from 31st Street.
