This morning there was a pair of calling Blue Grosbeaks near the Flying Cloud Airport. From
the intersection of Pioneer Trail and Mitchel Road go south on Mitchel and take the first left.
The birds are located near the small parking lot immediately adjacent to the ball fields. They
were calling from the hillside between the ball fields and the airport fencing. They were calling
intermittently so be patient. Please refrain from using tapes as they may be nesting in the
area. The male called only and never sang. Listen for the sharp metallic chip note. Both the
male and female were calling back and forth.
The GPS coordinates are as follows: 44.832618,-93.473059.
The birds were still present at 11:00 this morning.
