This is the Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, March 26th 2009.

On March 25th, Jim Mattsson reported three brief appearances of a
GOLDEN-CROWNED SPARROW in his backyard in Eagan, Dakota County. Because
there is no place to view the bird from outside the house, if the bird
stays around, Jim will make visiting arrangements for Saturday morning.
In that event, this tape will be updated with that information.

On the 24th, there was a report of a WHOOPING CRANE flying east over
McGregor Marsh SNA in Aitkin County. This is about three miles south of
McGregor.

Shorebirds are beginning to arrive in the southern parts of the state.
Recent arrivals include AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER, LESSER YELLOWLEGS,
GREATER YELLOWLEGS, PECTORAL SANDPIPER, LEAST SANDPIPER, BAIRD'S
SANDPIPER, and WILSON'S SNIPE. I also have new reports of EASTERN
PHOEBE, LOGGERHEAD SHRIKE, AMERICAN PIPIT, SAVANNAH SPARROW, VESPER
SPARROW, and CLAY-COLORED SPARROW.

The next scheduled update of this tape is Thursday, April 2nd 2009.
