This is the Minnesota Birding Report for September 8th, 2011.

In east Duluth, Karl Bardon found a RED-THROATED LOON on September 6th
on Lake Superior near the Lester River.

Also in Duluth, at least one jaeger  probably a PARASITIC JAEGER  has
been seen periodically out from Park Point over Lake Superior, and at
Hawk Ridge more than 1800 SHARP-SHINNED HAWKS were counted on the 4th,
along with a SWAINSON'S HAWK on the same day.

On the 7th, the fall's first WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW was reported by Bill
Tefft near Ely, St. Louis County. This is just three days earlier than
the species' median arrival date. Other recently reported migrants
include AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER, BLACK-BELLIED PLOVER, SANDHILL CRANE,
STILT SANDPIPER, SANDERLING, RUDDY TURNSTONE, RUBY-THROATED HUMMINGBIRD,
YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER, AMERICAN PIPIT, EASTERN BLUEBIRD, SWAINSON'S
THRUSH, CEDAR WAXWING, ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER, and BLACK-THROATED GREEN
WARBLER.
