Late this afternoon there was a male Blue Grosbeak perched on a utility wire along a gravel mine a few miles southeast of Sleepy Eye. This gravel mine is along the Cottonwood river and is a location where I've been searching for Blue Grosbeak at for years but haven't found one until today. The exact address is 24214 220th St. (Hoffman's Demolition Landfill). I think I saw a female there as well but didn't get the best looks at it. I was able to "digiscope" a few pictures of the male.
