This is the Minnesota Birding Report for October 18th, 2011.

A juvenile PURPLE SANDPIPER is being seen in Swift County at the Lubenow
WPA about seven miles north of the town of Appleton. The specific
location is along 230th Avenue, about two miles north of U.S. Highway
12. Though it has been found all along 230th Avenue, it's most often
reported on the rocks on the east side of the road close to the north
end of the WPA.

In Chippewa County, a juvenile SNOWY EGRET was found on the 17th at mile
marker 62 of state highway 7, northwest of the town of Watson.

On the 16th, a SUMMER TANAGER was in the yard of Cindy and Chris
Edwardson in Duluth at the corner of East Arrowhead and Vermilion Road.

And at Sherburne NWR in Sherburne County, 4,958 SANDHILL CRANES were
counted on the refuge on October 18th.

The next scheduled update of this tape is October 27th, 2011.
