This is the Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday September 19th, 2013.

There have been very few reports during the past two weeks, and what there is consists mostly of common fall migrants. I have a belated report of a PRAIRIE FALCON seen on September 7th at the Felton Prairie in Clay County. And while I have no specific location, it was apparently east of the pond that is east of county road 108.

Karl Bardon reports that multiple PARASITIC JAEGERS can still be be seen on Lake Superior in Duluth, primarily between the recreation area of Park Point and Wisconsin Point.

An adult LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL was found by Eric Collins on the 14th at Lafayette Square of Park Point. Other reports of southbound migrants include ROSS'S GOOSE, GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE, SANDERLING, LAPLAND LONGSPUR, PALM WARBLER, HARRIS'S SPARROW, FOX SPARROW, WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW, and RUSTY BLACKBIRD.

The next scheduled update is Thursday September 26th, 2013.
