Just saw a hermit's thrush on Bassett Creek in Minneapolis, on the part of the 
creek that's between Bassett's Creek Park (dog park to the north) and Bassett's 
Creek Playground, which abuts W. Chestnut Ave.  First ever in Hennepin Co. for 
me (we moved her last August).


wood ducks - saw about eight on the creek yesterday (4/14), but they were gone 
today (4/15)

hooded mergansers - a pair there yesterday and today

mallards - about 60 both yesterday and today

Canada geese - about 15 both yesterday and today

American robins - saw three in the trees on the north side of the creek


At neighbor's feeder (Bryn Mawr neighborhood)

dark-eyed juncos - slaty subspecies, at least 40

American goldfinches - around 20

house finches - about eight

house sparrows - two

mourning doves - two; hadn't seen these before at the feeder.  They had also 
been turning up at the creek.


Any possibility of a purple finch?  Hoping it was, but think it was just a 
really bright red house finch.


Best,

David
