This is the Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday March 21st, 2013.

Since the last update of this report that has been very little birding news. An apparent female BARROW'S GOLDENEYE has been seen intermittently at the Coon Rapids Dam on the Hennepin / Anoka county line.

A SNOWY OWL was near Euclid in Polk County on March 19th.

A male VARIED THRUSH is being seen in Alison Clarke's yard along the 200 block of Ridgewood Road in east Duluth.

A bit far south was the PINE GROSBEAK seen March 18th on the St. Paul campus of the University of Minnesota.

Spring migration has slowed with the colder weather, but I have recent reports of TUNDRA SWAN, SANDHILL CRANE, AMERICAN WOODDOCK, MERLIN, EASTERN BLUEBIRD, and AMERICAN ROBIN.

The next scheduled update of this tape is Thursday March 28th, 2013.
