After Easter Mass I stepped outside and saw 15 White Pelicans flying over St.
James Catholic Church in West Duluth. I then headed over to Park Point and
relocated the Whimbrel that Peder Svingen found on Friday and it was still there
as of this morning. The Whimbrel was foraging for worms along the side walk that
runs the length of the ball field in front of the bath house.
I then headed home and saw some Tree Swallows over my house and saw my first
Chipping Sparrow of the season. I just got back from Colorado so I am trying to
get caught up on what has been reported in Duluth lately.
On my Facebook account this afternoon I saw a report from Greg Neise that a
Painted Redstart was spotted in MN this spring season. Greg got the report from
Chris West of WI through a Facebook group called ABA Rare Birds. Chris West got
the original bird report from Alyssa DeRubeis of Minnesota. Chris asked for more
details from Alyssa but so far no reply. I am just curious if others might know
of this sighting in Minnesota?
