Hotline: Minnesota, Detroit Lakes

This week has seen the countryside blossom with many wild flowers that
are enjoying the many showers. Late summer wildflowers like asters, and
black-eyed susan cover every pasture and uncultivated field. Combined
with a few sunflower fields, the landscape is a riot of color now. Young
birds are everywhere.

From Grant County, Charlene Nelson reported a SHARP-SHINNED HAWK on
August 6. A RED KNOT was found on August 10 with other shorebirds on the
north side of the Ottawa Impoundment.

Steve Midthune found shorebirds on the north side of US 10 in a flooded
bean field 2.5 miles west of Lake Park on August 6. Present were
PECTORAL SANDPIPER, GREATER YELLOWLEGS, LESSER YELLOWLEGS, BAIRD'S
SANDPIPER, and KILLDEER. TRUMPETER SWAN and GREEN HERON were also seen
there.

Here in Pennington County on August 10, the RED-HEADED WOODPECKER pair
showed up at the feeder. On August 4, a group of birders led by Craig
Mandel found a variety of ducks including 21 RUDDY DUCKS at the Thief
River Falls WTP. Other species seen included PIED-BILLED GREBE,
RED-NECKED GREBE, and EARED GREBE, small numbers of 8 common shorebirds,
FRANKLIN'S GULLS, BLACK TERNS, a MERLIN, and three YELLOW-HEADED
BLACKBIRDS.

I joined Craig's group in a trip to Kittson County where we found COMMON
LOON, HORNED GREBE , BLACK TERN, and AMERICAN BITTERN at Twin Lakes;
WILD TURKEY, TURKEY VULTURE, and CHIMNEY SWIFTS were also seen in the
county. A very cooperative BLACK-BILLED CUCKOO was found near Larry
Wilebskiís place, and a LE CONTEíS SPARROW allowed itself to be seen
perched in a weedy field.

A PHILADELPHIA VIREO was reported by Nathan Martineau at Zippel Bay
State Park campground in Lake of the Woods County on August 5.
