This is the Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, January 29th 2009.

In Duluth, the immature GOLDEN-CROWNED SPARROW was still at 21 East
College Street today, but is being seen only intermittently.

Also in Duluth, the male BARROW'S GOLDENEYE was seen at Canal Park on
the 28th.

Despite apparent trapping by grounds-keepers, there is still at least
one SNOWY OWL at the Minneapolis - St. Paul airport, best looked for
along Cargo Road. A SNOWY OWL was still in Dodge County on the 25th, in
a field to the west of 150th Avenue about halfway between 690th and
700th Street. And in Mower County, a SNOWY OWL was near Sargeant along
640th Avenue, south of 300th Street.

On the 26th, at least one SPRUCE GROUSE was in Lake County along state
highway 1, a tenth of a mile east of mile marker 302.

And a VARIED THRUSH is visiting a feeder in Independence, Hennepin
County, but at this point I have no further details.

The next scheduled update of this tape is Thursday, February 5th 2009.
