The Black-headed Grosbeak is still present in Duluth, with
observations at 3 different times this morning between 7:45 and 11:00.

60th Ave East, turn left and go 2 blocks to Superior St, then turn
right to 6219 (which is located on the inland side of Superior St).
- Please park on Superior St (not in the driveway).
- Because of limited visibility into the backyard (where the feeders
are) and to avoid disturbing the bird, the homeowners have asked that
NO MORE THAN FIVE PERSONS visit at any one time.

5 persons are present at a time.
- The homeowners, Pat and John Thomas, thank you all in advance for
your cooperation! Please feel free to give me a call at 218 349 5953
if you have any questions.
