Saw the Varied Thrush (very briefly) near Sherburne NWR on Friday afternoon, 
missed the Townsend's Solitaire at Ann Lake.

Saw the Black-headed Grosbeak in Duluth yesterday (life bird for both of 
us) - missed the Spotted Towhee near Bruno.  Enjoyed Great Black-Backed, 
Iceland and two Thayer's Gulls at the 27th Street waste station (could not 
find a Glaucous there or at Canal Park) - few Bohemian Waxwings in Two 
Harbors.  Ony Pine Siskins seen/heard among winter finches.

Thanks to everyone for their prayers and good wishes for Nathan.  One one 
hand, he had a second seizure Friday; on the other hand, he was cleared to 
go to Duluth yesterday.  More testing coming coming this week, MRI was 

Good birding (and New Year) to all.
