This is the Northwest Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, July 2,
2009 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.

It has been cool and pleasant since the great storm on the weekend which
left the whole area very soggy. It is starting to dry out now, but many
fields are still too wet to get into. This hasn't stopped the birds, as
babies are appearing everywhere.

Danielle Kvasager , reporting from Rydell NWR in Polk County , mentioned
TRUMPETER SWAN, COMMON LOON, AMERICAN WHITE PELICAN, RED-NECKED GREBE,
and RED-BELLIED WOODPECKER among the sightings this past week. Shelley
Steva saw two pairs of SANDHILL CRANES just north of Erskine at the edge
of the Polk WMA, one of which had a colt. She also saw a GREEN HERON
near McIntosh on July 27. Sid Stivland observed a COMMON LOON, OSPREY,
and GRASSHOPPER SPARROW among others at Glacial Ridge NWR on July 28.

Here in Pennington County, Zeann Linder reported that on July 29 she
finally confirmed young in the MERLIN nest near her home in Thief River
Falls. It is still uncertain how many young there are, but we are
watching their progress.

Gary Tischer, reporting from Agassiz NWR in Marshall County on July 1,
said that duck broods are starting to appear at the refuge. A pair of
TRUMPETER SWANS with 5 cygnets is being seen at Northwest Pool; another
pair which have no young were seen at Agassiz Pool. There are 4 active
BALD EAGLE nests at Agassiz, and two GREAT HORNED OWL young have been
observed in the southwest part of the refuge in recent days.

Shelley Steva in Bemidji, Beltrami County, on June 27, reported nesting
HAIRY WOODPECKER and BROWN THRASHER in Bemidji near the campus of
Bemidji State University.

Beth Siverhus in Warroad, Roseau County, observed HAIRY WOODPECKER with
young, PURPLE MARTIN, RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET, BROWN THRASHER, GRAY
CATBIRD, and CEDAR WAXWING this week.

Thanks to Beth Siverhus, Danielle Kvasager, Gary Tischer, Shelley Steva,
