My Spring/Summer Birds


My recent bird sightings from MN Backyard Birds yard include; American Goldfinch, Gray Catbird, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Chickadee, Oriole, Downy Woodpecker, White-breasted Nuthatch, Cardinal, House Finch and Blue Jay.  It's very important to keep the feeders clean and refilled with fresh food.  Besides using seeds I have several meal worm feeders that attract a lot of birds too.  Happy Birding!

Detroit Lakes Festival Of Birds

Detroit Lakes Festival Of Birds

Your Guide- May 21, 2010 Detroit Lakes Festival of Birds Itasca State Park 

Bird watching from bridge above the start of the Mississippi River at Itasca State Park.  We saw 70 species at the state park some of the birds seen were Common Loon, Evening Grosbeaks, and about 10 warbler species.  In most years we see over 100 species, we think that the birds are still migrating through the area.

Woodduck Boxes

Woodduck Boxes

Your Guide – Judd Brink      

On Sunday March 28 I finished installing these two woodduck boxes on Hartley Lake.  I hope the boxes will attract Woodducks this year and I will keep this updated I hope you too will think about providing a nest box for them.  The Woodduck society of Minnesota has some great info about attracting and housing woodducks and coming soon you will be able to order online boxes and predator guards!
