Without repeating sightings recently reported by others, the Minn  
Birding Weekends group saw a few things of note yesterday, January 11:

- A male American Three-toed Woodpecker was along the W side of  
McDavitt Rd, 3.1 mi N of Sax Rd. Look for an improvised foot path  
through the snow into the woods on the W side of the road; there are  
also 2-3 paths on the E side of the road here. This is presumably the  
same individual seen in this area previously, although I'm not aware  
anyone has reported it for several days. As others have reported,  
Black-backed Woodpeckers are still being seen here: we saw a female  
yesterday and a male on January 10, both on the E side of McDavitt.

- Two N Hawk Owls were seen along McDavitt Rd, both ~2 mi N of Sax Rd,  
where only one had been reported previously. It is possible the second  
individual is the one which has been reported along Admiral Rd, 1 mile  
E of here.

- We relocated a male Hoary Redpoll on Park Point in Duluth near 38th  
Street among a small flock of Common Redpolls, presumably the same  
bird we had seen here on January 10. This was an obvious and classic  
Hoary, so the ID was straightforward and not as difficult as is so  
often the case with this species.

We did not see or look for the male Barrow's Goldeneye we saw on the  
10th on L Superior at 21st Ave E.  Kim Eckert
