This is the Minnesota Birding Report for September 1st, 2011.
A PRAIRIE FALCON was reported on August 30th by Bob Ekblad, at the North
Ottawa Impoundment in Grant County which is very near the Traverse
County line. Alex Watson refound it the following day.
I have a couple reports of migrant Orange-crowned Warblers, but this
species is exceptionally rare before the first week of September. Other
less-controversial reports include HORNED GREBE, AMERICAN AVOCET,
BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPER, DUNLIN, WILSON'S PHALAROPE, CASPIAN TERN,
PHILADELPHIA VIREO, OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER, MAGNOLIA WARBLER, NORTHERN
PARULA, and CONNECTICUT WARBLER.
The next scheduled update of this tape is September 8th, 2011.
