Our North Shore, Lake Superior from Duluth to Grand Marais, is always good for birding, but never better than in the fall. Here is a list of birds seen by groups of birders last weekend.

 

Red Phalarope, Silver Bay 

 

Mountain Bluebird, Two Harbors

 

American Golden-Plover, Grand Marais campground

 

Pacific Loon, Taconite Harbor

 

Warbling Vireo, Knife River

 

Marsh Wren, Two Harbors

 

At least five Townsend’s Solitaires, Grand Marais, Good Harbor Bay west of Grand Marais, Knife River (photo below)

 

Hoary Redpoll, Grand Marais and Croftville Road east of Grand Marais

 

White-winged and Black Scoter, Grand Marais harbor 

 

Common Redpolls, thousands streaming along the lakeshore between Lutsen and Grand Marais. 

 

Bohemian Waxwings, Grand Marais

 

Plus many American Robins, five Bald Eagles and four Rough-legged Hawks along Highway 61 

between Lutsen and Grand Marais, and many Snow Buntings and Horned Larks along 

various driveways.

 

Our thanks to Kim Eckert for posting this information to the Minnesota birding email list.
