Yesterday during the St. Cloud-Collegeville CBC, a Hoary Redpoll was 
reported among a large flock of Common Redpolls just west of the 
intersection of CR2 and 270th St.  This is mid-way between St. Joseph and 
Cold Spring just inside the count circle.  Today around 12:30 I located a 
Hoary Redpoll along CR2 just north of this intersection, but in a smaller 
flock of 60 or so Common Redpolls.

Later in the afternoon I came across a Short-eared Owl hunting along 385th 
Ave between 350th and 360th St.  This location is southwest of Melrose. 
This was a somewhat odd location - mostly bare fields - but there is WMA at 
the intersection of 385th Ave. and 360th St. that it may be roosting at.  I 
did not get the impression that it was migrating because it drifted off to 
the northeast.
