This is the Minnesota Birding Report for November 3rd, 2011.

On October 29th, a probable TROPICAL KINGBIRD was photographed by Mike
Hendrickson along Lenroot Street in west Duluth, but the bird left the
area almost as soon as it was found and has not been seen since.

The following day, Bob Dunlap and Ben Fritchman found a SCISSOR-TAILED
FLYCATCHER in west Duluth, along Waseca Industrial Road about half a
mile east then south of Central Avenue. This bird was still present on
the 31st.

And in Grand Marais, Cook County, Jim Lind found a probable SCOTT'S
ORIOLE on the 30th, along 2nd Avenue between 1st and 3rd Streets. The
oriole was seen only briefly later in the day and has not been reported
since. Also in the Grand Marais area were several reports of SURF

I also have a belated report of a GRAY-CROWNED ROSY-FINCH seen in
Babbitt, St. Louis County on October 27th, but I do not yet have a
specific location.

On the 30th, Ned Winters reported as many as 200 TUNDRA SWANS
congregating on the Mississippi River at Brownsville, Houston County.
And in Sherburne County, Betsy Beneke reports that on November 3rd, a
survey of SANDHILL CRANES on the Sherburne NWR produced a total of 6190
birds, with most of them being seen on the north side of county road 3
and along county road 70.

The next scheduled update of this tape is November 10th, 2011.
