Some parts of the northwest have received some snow this week, but in the
far northwest, so far not much has accumulated. There is little evidence of
migration yet, if we don't consider the snowy owls that are undoubtedly
moving north, as we are seeing and hearing of more of them in recent weeks.
This week I have heard of one snowy owl in Pennington, one more in Red Lake,
one in Marshall,  and one in Kittson County . Hoary redpolls were reported
this week in Marshall, Polk, and Hubbard counties.
Ben Stubbs reported a BOREAL OWL  seen and photographed in Roseau County on
February 15. A NORTHERN HAWK OWL  and several groups of SNOW BUNTINGS  were
seen by Shelley Steva and I in the county on February 16.
In Kittson County, Shelley and I found one SNOWY OWL, a NORTHERN SHRIKE, and
SNOW BUNTINGS  on February 16.
John Hess reported a RED-WINGED BLACKBIRD  in Marshall County on February
Here in Pennington County, I had a flock of about fifty BOHEMIAN WAXWINGS

waxwings have moved on.
Shelley Steva found seven GRAY PARTRIDGE  near Brooks in Red Lake County on
February 21.
