This is the Northwest Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, June 17,
2010 sponsored by the Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce. You
may also hear this report by calling (218)847-5743 or 1-800-433-1888.

We have had about two days with sunshine in the past week in the
northwest, and today, it rained again. Everyone will feel more cheerful
when this batch of rainy weather passes. Birds are going about their
business as usual and some will be happy at the increase of mosquitoes
in the area. Birders , come prepared if you plan to be outdoors.
Sighting have been few this week, due partly to the weather, and partly
due to the nesting season that keeps some species quiet and always on
the move feeding young.

Beau Shroyer spent the last weekend in Hubbard County where he reported
BARRED OWL, RED-EYED VIREO, YELLOW-THROATED VIREO, VEERY, CHESTNUT-SIDED
WARBLER, OVENBIRD, and SCARLET TANAGER among others.

In Polk County on June 11, Shelley Steva saw several WESTERN KINGBIRDS
along CR 252 north of Crookston.

Here in Pennington County on June 16, I saw a SHORT-EARED OWL hunting
over a hayfield a few miles east of Thief River Falls along 210th Ave
south of 160th St NE.

Pat DeWenter visited the Big Bog SNA in northern Beltrami County on June
16 where she saw OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER, GRAY JAY, WINTER WREN,
GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLET, NASHVILLE WARBLER, NORTHERN PARULA,
YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER, PALM WARBLER, AMERICAN REDSTART, and CONNECTICUT
WARBLER.

Thanks to Beau Shroyer, Pat DeWenter, and Shelley Steva for their
reports.
