This is the Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, February 5th 2009.

In Duluth, the male BARROW'S GOLDENEYE was seen again at Canal Park on the 3rd.

In Lake County, four SPRUCE GROUSE were found on the 3rd along county road 2, a mile and a half south of Forest Road 11. North of here, an AMERICAN THREE-TOED WOODPECKER has been seen by several people along Spruce Road which goes east from state highway 1 about 14 miles northwest of Lake County Road 2. The bird was just east of Endless Waters Way Road.

A SNOWY OWL was reported on the 5th near the Eagan Community Center in Dakota County, just west of Pilot Knob Road between Lone Oak and Yankee Doodle roads.

There is an interesting report of a very early OSPREY on the Mississippi River on the 1st at the Lake Street bridge in Minneapolis. And I am still getting many reports of NORTHERN FLICKER, AMERICAN ROBIN, COMMON REDPOLL, WHITE-WINGED CROSSBILL, and RED CROSSBILL.

The next scheduled update of this tape is Thursday, February 12th 2009.
