This is the Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, July 2nd 2009.
A BROWN PELICAN is being seen on German Lake, Le Sueur County, near the
lake's island. Places to look from include the boat launch on the
northern side of the lake, or perhaps better, from the cul de sac on the
southwest side. Take Le Sueur County Road 13 north from 16. Watch for
the sign that says "Model home for sale" and turn right onto Jason Adam
Court. This leads to the cul de sac and the bird has been seen on the
rock to the east.
In Duluth, a YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER was seen on June 20th on the Old
North Shore Road, about half a mile east of Ryan Road, but it has not
been seen since.
A SNOWY EGRET was in the Purgatory Creek wetlands in Eden Prairie,
Hennepin County on the 30th. And a CATTLE EGRET was at the Old Cedar
Avenue Bridge in Bloomington, Hennepin County on June 30th and July 2nd.
The next scheduled update of this tape is Thursday, July 9th 2009.
