This is the Northwest Minnesota Birding Report for Thursday, July 11, 2019
sponsored by the Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce. You may also

The story this week is all about the young of the common resident species of
birds. All sorts of newly fledged chicks have been reported this week, but
the hot weather seems to have inhibited the human population. There are very
few reports of unusual species this week, but it certainly has been a good
week to document nesting of the usual residents.

From Lake of the Woods County, Ben Douglas reported MARBLED GODWITS on July
6th. They will soon be on the way south again.

Joanne and Terry Johnson visited Old Mill State Park in Marshall County on
July 7th where they saw an impressive number of species including SANDHILL
CRANES, four BLACK-BILLED CUCKOOS, 4 YELLOW-THROATED VIREOS, 3 OLIVE-SIDED
FLYCATCHERS, GRAY CATBIRDS, and a few CEDAR WAXWINGS.

Here is central Pennington County I heard an INDIGO BUNTING singing in our
neighbor's yard.

Alex Sundvall recorded HERMIT THRUSHES singing at Vergas in Otter Tail
County on July 11th. A NORTHERN GOSHAWK was observed by Charlene Nelson at
Eagle Lake State WMA on July 6th.

Please report bird sightings to Jeanie Joppru by email, no later than
Thursday each week, at <ajjoppru...> <mailto:<ajjoppru...>
OR call the Detroit Lakes Chamber's numbers 218-847-5743 or 218- 847-9202.
Please include the county where the sighting took place. The next scheduled
update of this report is Thursday, July 18, 2019.
