On Sunday the birding Gods were with me. I observed a male and female Blue Grosbeak on 140th st in Dakota County. I have been reluctant to post this pair because they may very well be a breeding pair which would be a rarity. The birds have been very active and should be easily seen. I would ask that you DO NOT USE TAPES , as they are not necessary and more importantly be very disturbing to the pair. I hope I have not errored in posting this. I would like others to enjoy these birds without interfering with a possible successful breeding attempt.
Directions are at junction of Highway 52 & county road 42 go east about one block ; north on Conley ave to 140th st.se ; turn right go to the county garbage dump on north side of the road where there are a group of Cedar trees .The birds have been in this area. ( it's about 1.7 miles from the turn on Conley to the cedar trees.
Again, LETS NOT DISTURB THIS PAIR OF BLUE GROSBEAKS !
