A Minnesota Birding facebook group member posted a picture of a Snowy Egret
today. The location was not described other than along a state highway
north of Elbow Lake (unclear if the lake, per se, or the town). I'm hoping
to get more details. The poster was looking for help on the ID and was
unaware of the rarity.
We've also fielded a few more reports of Western Tanager and Summer Tanager
which I haven't been able to pass along recently. It seems as though it's a
great year for both these species in the Upper Midwest - Wisconsin has had
a number of both as well.
