Cardinals are now appearing in single-gender groups instead of the previous
family grouping. One day there were 5 adult males. Also several sightings
of one or two Fox Sparrows, which are a real delight. And of course, the
Red-bellied Woodpecker continues to spirit away all the peanuts from the
seed mix. :-)

Subject: [Mnbird] Winter Wrens
For the past two weeks I have had a Winter Wren in the vines and
around our house in the country south of Rogers , Mn. This morning
there were two if them flitting around together, moving together,
sometimes briefly touching, then back to hunting food. I saw the first
Wren last week on the suet feeder and on the two black oiler seed
feeders. I think it was eating small bits of sunflower seed residue
from that cracked by Cardinals and Finches. This was a new bird for
me. One if those that had fallen in the cracks in more than 50 years
of birding.

I found two females swimming together and they eventually associated with a
small raft of ruddies. Another birder refound them just now. Spring Lake.
I saw them after parking in a small gravel lot on County Road 12 and
walking to the lake. There also is a closed boat ramp off of 13 accessed
from Vergus Avenue where they were refound. The lot is closed right now but
no workers were on site so he walked in. Workers may come later. I don't
know.

A harrier flew over a newly picked cornfield on Henderson Road south of
Ridgeway Saturday morning. And not Minnesota, but close enough, two
whooping cranes were observed flying near the Marshland entrance to
Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge by my Ornithology class on Thursday
afternoon. Wow! The refuge manager says this is the first report of
whooping cranes at TNWR.

Subject: [Mnbird] Minnesota global birders on Honduras
In the fourth gathering of our "Minnesota global birders" group , Wilmer
Fernandez will give a presentation on birding in Honduras, where a great
diversity of ecosystems has resulted in more than 800 species of birds in a
country just half the size of Minnesota.



Good infrastructure, ecotourism lodges, a new field guide, and local birding
guides make Honduras a great place to get introduced to tropical birding.
Wilmer will also discuss local conservation efforts to preserve habitats and
the Neotropical migrants shared with Minnesota. You could even join in the
"Lake Yojoa Birding Blitz" to be held in Honduras in January.



Anybody interested is welcome. So we can monitor the number of attendees,
please get a free 'ticket' online from EventBrite at the link below.



Tuesday, November 14; 6:00-8:00

Uptown Plumbing's Community Gathering Space

3554 Bryant Ave S, Minneapolis (corner of 36th Street)

birders; approved by administrator Paul Schumacher.)

Went out birding by Dassel & Litchfield yesterday and was able to see and get pictures of these birds, Gadwell, Blue-winged Teal, Ring-necked Duck, Bufflehead, Redhead, Canvasback, Ruddy Duck, Wood Duck, Northern Shoveler, Cackling Goose, Hooded Merganser, Brewer\u2019s Blackbird and lots of Trumpeter Swans. I also got a picture of what we think is an American Pipit, it is not the best angle of the bird, but that is the best I could get before a car came along and scared them away. I would appreciate any information on them.
