This is the Northwest Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, February 9,
2012 sponsored by the Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce. You
may also hear this report by calling (218)847-5743 or 1-800-433-1888.

This week has reverted to true winter temperatures in the northwest, but
next week promises to be warmer. Perhaps the colder weather will bring
more species to the feeders.

A single SNOWY OWL was reported this week - this one seen at Little
McDonald Lake near Perham in Otter Tail County by Rick Gjervold on
February 6. Gary Otnes found a PRAIRIE FALCON near the Orwell Reservoir
on February 7. Other species seen there included a NORTHERN HARRIER and
three HORNED LARKS. At home near Fergus Falls, Gary reported HARRIS'S
SPARROWS, a small flock of AMERICAN ROBINS, and a single RED-WINGED
BLACKBIRD. Brad and Dee Ehlers reported an eagle nest that would be easy
to photograph on US 59 near the Lake Lizzie Road. It is a busy road so
be sure to pull off completely if you choose to do that.

Marshall Howe in Hubbard County reported an increase in COMMON REDPOLLS,
a BROWN CREEPER, and hundreds of AMERICAN CROWS. PINE GROSBEAKS were
seen in southern Hubbard County on February 3.

Steve Midthune saw a BLACK-BILLED MAGPIE three miles north of Lake Park
on CR 9 in Becker County on February 3.

On February 7, Sandy Aubol reported a MERLIN, a SHARP-SHINNED HAWK, 50
COMMON REDPOLLS, and the WHITE-THROATED SPARROW, EASTERN TOWHEE,
HARRIS'S SPARROWS, and NORTHERN CARDINAL that have been in East Grand
Forks, Polk County, all winter. Shelley Steva and Zeann Linder saw two
ROUGH-LEGGED HAWKS along CR 23 on February 4. Heidi Hughes reported that
the feeders at the Audubon Sanctuary near Warren are hosting a
BLACK-BILLED MAGPIE, BROWN CREEPER, RED-WINGED BLACKBIRD, and some
COMMON REDPOLLS.

In Pennington County, Shelley Steva and Zeann Linder saw a WILD TURKEY
along CR 7 on February 4. Along CR 8 they found BALD EAGLE and some
AMERICAN CROWS.

Five GRAY PARTRIDGES were seen by Shelley and Zeann near Viking in
Marshall County on February 4. Heidi Hughes saw a GOLDEN EAGLE on
February 9 at the Viking turn off MN 1 east of Warren.

In Beltrami County, Katie Haws reported a NORTHERN CARDINAL at her place
in Hines near Blackduck on February 6.

BOHEMIAN WAXWINGS were reported in Warroad , Roseau County, by Beth
Siverhus on February 9.

Thanks to all the folks who sent in their sightings this week.

Thursday each week, at ajjoppru@mncable.net OR call the Detroit Lakes
Chamber's toll free number: 1-800-542-3992. Detroit Lakes area birders
