This is the Minnesota Birding Report for September 22nd, 2011.

Two SABINE'S GULLS were found on 19th at a private pond in southeastern McLeod County. The exact location isn't be given out because of restricted access to the public, but if the gulls move to an area accessible to birders, this report will be updated.

A MISSISSIPPI KITE flew past Hawk Ridge in Duluth on the 15th, along with the first GOLDEN EAGLE of the fall. The raptor count at the ridge is currently at 37,797 birds.

In Duluth, there are still a couple of PARASITIC JAEGERS being seen over Lake Superior. All of the most recent sightings have been from the beach near the Sky Harbor Airport out to the end of Park Point.

The next scheduled update of this tape is September 29th, 2011.
