This is the Northwest Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, September
8, 2011 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.

After the cool days last weekend, there is no doubt that summer weather
is drawing to a close, but we are sure enjoying the warm sunny days this
week. Migration seems to be going strong, as every day we see the last
of some species.

Beau Shroyer found 2 EURASIAN COLLARED-DOVES in Becker County , in
Calloway along US 59 on September 5. At Hamden Slough on September 4,
Shelley Steva found GREATER YELLOWLEGS, LESSER YELLOWLEGS, STILT
SANDPIPER, and several peeps, and a phalarope species.

Russ Wilber observed 5 or 6 RED-HEADED WOODPECKERS at the East Grand
Forks campground in Polk County on September 7. Sandy Aubol reported the
first WHITE-THROATED SPARROW in her yard in East Grand Forks on
September 7. Kim Eckert's Minnesota Birding Weekend group found
SHARP-TAILED GROUSE, and GREATER PRAIRIE-CHICKEN in Polk County. Also
seen was a SHORT-EARED OWL at the future impoundment 6 miles south of
the Wetlands, Pines, and Prairies Audubon Center near Warren. Other
species seen in that county included SWAINSON'S HAWK, VIRGINIA RAIL, and
RED-NECKED PHALAROPE.

Shelley Steva reported a SHARP-SHINNED HAWK near Plummer in Red Lake
County on September 7.

In Pennington County the MBW group saw EARED GREBE, 135 RED-NECKED
PHALAROPES, and two AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVERS at the Thief River Falls
Wastewater Treatment Ponds. Here at our feeder east of Thief River Falls
in the last two days I have seen many TENNESSEE WARBLERS, AMERICAN
REDSTARTS, YELLOW WARBLERS,and a YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER and a NASHVILLE
WARBLER. This morning, September 8, I was treated the the spectacle of
several BAY-BREASTED WARBLERS, AMERICAN REDSTARTS, NASHVILLE WARBLERS,
and RED-EYED VIREOS bathing among the dewy leaves of the apple tree.
Other species seen in the yard today included RED-BELLIED WOODPECKER,
YELLOW-THROATED VIREO, and GRAY CATBIRD.

In Marshall County, the MBW group had great looks at a RUDDY TURNSTONE,
several BAIRD'S SANDPIPERS, a SANDERLING, and several RED-NECKED
PHALAROPES at the Warren Wastewater Treatment Ponds. Along with many
other species, an OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER was found at Agassiz NWR.

In the course of the weekend, the MBW group birded in Pennington, Polk,
and Marshall Counties and found 16 species of shorebirds and 18 warbler
species.

Thanks to Beau Shroyer, Kim Eckert, Russ Wilber, Sandy Aubol, and
Shelley Steva for their reports.
