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
21.

Here in Pennington County, I had a flock of about fifty BOHEMIAN
WAXWINGS visit the year on February 18. Most of the fruit is now gone,
and the waxwings have moved on.

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

Sandy Aubol in East Grand Forks , Polk County, reports DARK-EYED JUNCO,
and a WHITE-THROATED SPARROW at her feeders.

Perry Brown observed a NORTHERN SHRIKE in his yard in Detroit Lakes,
Becker County on February 15.
