Local residents reported today seeing a Piping Plover a couple of days ago on the beach at about the 3300 block of Park Point, and late this morning it was still present. It was found after about a 10-minute walk south from the 31st Street/Lafayette Square access, and it had a yellow band with black lettering on its left leg: N86.

As noted on the May 16 Duluth RBA, the birding has been interesting at Park Point, with some of the species mentioned (Red-throated Loon, N Mockingbird, Eastern Towhee) plus a few others (Western Grebe, Willet, Snowy Owl) reported yesterday or today by various observers (and note that I did not discover any of them). About the only thing negative to report is the relative lack of warblers: e.g., despite ideal fallout conditions in the fog this morning after yesterday's rain, I'm aware of only 14 warbler species (with just a few individuals of each) being seen at Park Point. Hopefully, birders there this afternoon might have some additional sightings of note.
