This is the Minnesota Birding Report for February 16th, 2012.

The NORTHERN HAWK OWL is still being seen near Gooseberry Falls State
Park in Lake County. Check along state highway 61 about a mile northeast
of the Gooseberry River.

Both AMERICAN THREE-TOED WOODPECKER and BLACK-BACKED WOODPECKER are
being seen in Lake County on the east side of the Sawbill Landing Road,
a quarter of a mile north of forest road 172.

There was a second-hand report of a MOUNTAIN BLUEBIRD from the 16th near
Tofte in Cook County, across the highway from the grocery store, but I
have no further information.

On the 12th, Milton Blomberg found a TOWNSEND'S SOLITAIRE at the Warner
Lake County Park near Clearwater in Stearns County. Directions are to
park at the Nature Center building, walk the trail over the bridge and
around the west side of the lake for about a quarter of a mile to the
stand of cedars on the left.

The VARIED THRUSH which has been seen in Duluth since last December was
still visiting the feeders at 6219 East Superior Street. Birders are
welcome to stop by, but are asked to stay between the driveway and the
back door and not walk into the backyard. And the VARIED THRUSH  first
seen January 17th in Hasting Dakota County at 17774 Blackbird Trail 
was still present today.

Very early was the February 12th report of calling SANDHILL CRANES at
Lake Rebecca Park Reserve in Hennepin County. This is more than a month
earlier than the species' typical spring arrival date. Other spring
migrants that have begun to show up include AMERICAN KESTREL, HORNED
LARK, EASTERN BLUEBIRD, and AMERICAN ROBIN.

The next scheduled update of this tape is February 23rd, 2012.
