This is the Northwest Minnesota Birding Report for April 7, sponsored by the Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce. Spring has indeed come to the northland. Rivers are free flowing now, and even some lakes are starting to open up. Migrants are flooding in and in addition to raptors and waterfowl, now there are passerines appearing.

Life leads us in many different directions. Sometimes we feel torn between places, and other times lost in familiar atmospheres. We are constantly adjusting ourselves to the niches made for us by society. Sometimes we do not fit them, and sometimes they do not fit us. During our frequent shifts, decisions will have to be made.
