This is the Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, July 29th, 2010.

I have a belated report of a LEAST TERN seen on July 18th at the
Kandiyohi County Park at Diamond Lake about four miles north of U.S.
Highway 12 and northwest of the town of Atwater.

Karl Roe found a WHIMBREL on the 28th near a sod farm just east of
Farmington in Dakota County. The location was the east side of Blaine
Avenue along 200th Street.

On the 19th, a YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON was photographed by Aron
Wilterding in Plymouth, Hennepin County, at a pond near the 2800 block
of Alvarado Lane North.

In Lake of the Woods County, Beth Siverhus reported a NORTHERN HAWK OWL
along state highway 72 near Baudette on July 15th. And in Lake County,
Norma Malinowski saw a GREAT GRAY OWL on the 22nd along a trail just
east of the Spruce Road and north of state Highway 1.

An immature NORTHERN MOCKINGBIRD was reported on the 26th by Nick Rowse
at the headquarters office of the Minnesota NWR in Bloomington, Hennepin
County.

Fall migrants include BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPER, BONAPARTE'S GULL,
GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLER, CAPE MAY WARBLER, PURPLE FINCH, and EVENING
GROSBEAK.
