This is the Northwest Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, August 30,
2012 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.

This has been a rather hot week in the northwest, but the acorns have
started falling and some yellow leaves are appearing, so fall must be on
the way. Due to the heat, not many migrants are being seen. The heat has
also dried up the potholes, so there are fewer places to view shorebirds
or waterfowl.

Pat DeWenter drove the Pitt Grade on the east side of the Beltrami
Island State Forest in Lake of the Woods County on August 30, where she
observed OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER, GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLET, BLACK-AND-WHITE
WARBLER, PALM WARBLER, and three WHITE-WINGED CROSSBILLS .

WARBLER, and BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER were seen there on August 29.

Cleone Stewart saw a BLACK-BILLED MAGPIE at her home in Becker County
close to the Otter Tail County line on August 26.
