V O L U M E 7 0 ( 2 0 1 9 ) • N U M B E R S 3 / 4 307 W E S T E R N G R E AT L A K E S classified as northbound stragglers. Unusual for mid-summer in Minnesota were a Tundra Swan in Norman 24 Jun (KRE et al.) and a Greater Scaup in Roseau 10 Jul (RAE). Unsea - sonable in Michigan was the Common Eider at Ludington, Mason 28 Jul (ph. Mark Wloch). Northbound Surf Scoters lingered in Cook, MN 3 Jun (RBJ) and Manitowoc, WI 5-12 Jun (CL, †TW). Lingering White-winged Scoters are less unexpected, though a flock of 61 passing Whitefish Pt. 2 Jun (PCC, LJD) was a surpris - ing number. Injury explained the presence of a Long-tailed Duck in Manitowoc, WI 12 Jul+ (CSo). Wisconsin's report of a Horned Grebe family at Crex Meadows 16 Jun awaits con - firmation. Extirpated as a breeding species in Minnesota, Horned Grebes in Roseau 24 Jun (AXH) and Douglas 8 Jul (DPG) were welcome. Clark's Grebe was not found in Minnesota for the 3 rd consecutive summer. Recapitulating its inexorable spread into Minnesota, Eurasian Collared-Doves inhab - ited 17 Wisconsin counties as far n. as Burnett 26 Jun (MB). Also in Wisconsin, were single White-winged Doves in Lafayette 8 Jun (QY) and Clark 4 Jul (RC). Wisconsin's Chuck- will's-widow straddled the Jefferson/Walworth line for the 5th consecutive summer; another continued calling at Sharonville S.G.A., Jack - son, MI through 2 Jul (m.ob.). A male Rufous Hummingbird visited a feeder in Portage, WI 30 Jul (†BZ, ph. †KKo). Minnesota's 2nd Cal - liope Hummingbird fed and sheltered in a Si- berian pea shrub at Park Point 13-15 Jun (ph. LA, ph. †PHS, †PCC, m.ob.).

WATERFOWL THROUGH CRANES Furnishing Minnesota's 12th record was a Black-bellied Whistling-Duck in McLeod 6-12 Jun (BNe, ph. †BWF, ph. PNi, ph. HL).
