This is the Northwest Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, November 7,
2013 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.

Ever so slowly , we are slipping into winter, made more obvious by the
time change we experienced last weekend. Migration is about over, and
now the vagrants are starting to show up.

The big news this week is the LEWIS'S WOODPECKER reported by Janet
Anderson in Roosevelt on the Roseau- Lake of the Woods County line.
Location is along CR 17 north of MN 11 which is the county line. To get
to the location, turn north on CR 17, also known as Rocky Point Road,
cross the tracks, and the bird has been visiting the first house on the
left since November 2. The house is gray with a tan garage. CR 17 is
very busy and has no shoulder so it is advisable to turn onto the gravel
street and park on the shoulder there to view the feeders. Do not park
in the driveway or very close to it as the feeder is very close to the
road. The bird has been flying back and forth into Lake of the Woods
county to the next house, the first on the right of CR 17. As of 2PM
this afternoon the bird was still there. A PILEATED WOODPECKER attempted
to drive it away while I was looking at it.

In Polk County, Terry and Joanne Johnson reported a late PALM WARBLER in
their yard in East Grand Forks on November 3.

Charlene Nelson reported 16 TRUMPETER SWANS at Lake Christina in Douglas
County on October 30.

At home at Elbow Lake in Grant County, Charlene reported 5 HARRIS'S
SPARROWS and a HOUSE FINCH on October 30. On November 2, two adult BALD
EAGLES were seen on MN 79 near Elbow Lake. A GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLET was
observed on November 3 in Elbow Lake.

Thanks to Janet Anderson, Joanne Johnson, and Charlene Nelson for their
