This is the Northwest Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, September
11, 2014 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.

A large portion of the passerine migration has moved through the
northwest already, and much of the rest must surely be thinking about
going as we anticipate the first possible frost tonight. Most of the
warblers are gone already along with the swallows, and a lot of the
flycatchers.

From Warroad in Roseau County on September 10, Beth Siverhus reported
TURKEY VULTURE, BALD EAGLE, NORTHERN HARRIER, COOPER'S HAWK, FRANKLINíS
GULLS, BONAPARTEíS GULLS, RING-BILLED GULLS, a few RUBY-THROATED
HUMMINGBIRDS, one BALTIMORE ORIOLE, BROWN THRASHER, CEDAR WAXWING,
MERLIN, AMERICAN KESTREL, GREATER YELLOWLEGS, and BELTED KINGFISHER.

Here is Pennington County , we still have a few RUBY-THROATED
HUMMINGBIRDS and a RED-BELLIED WOODPECKER coming to the feeder.

On September 7, Shelley Steva and I found a few shorebirds at the
Crookston WTP in Polk County, including KILLDEER, SOLITARY SANDPIPER,
LESSER YELLOWLEGS, BAIRD'S SANDPIPER, and WILSONíS SNIPE. There were a
few BARN SWALLOWS there also.

At Mahnomen City Park on September 7, we found a COMMON NIGHTHAWK,
RED-BELLIED WOODPECKER, and YELLOW-THROATED VIREO. At the Waubun WTP,
there was an AMERICAN BITTERN , a GREEN HERON, and one EASTERN KINGBIRD.
Elsewhere in Mahnomen County we found an EASTERN WOOD-PEWEE.

in his yard along the Red River in Moorhead , Clay County, on September
11.
