Not to sure what I have here, and neither did the staff at Rydell Wildlife Refugee. Maybe some flycatcher variety? Made a short sharp sound for a chirp. here is pics, though not the best.

My first guess, based on bill coloration and length would be a juvenile Easter Wood Peewee.

Second guess, again based on the bill would Olive Sided Flycatcher.

I'd say you've got a juvie eastern wood-pewee or juvie eastern phoebe. Phoebe is what I think.

I would agree with the phoebe. We have some here nesting above the door and I would say an exact match.

I don't remeber if the tail bobbed or not, it was not hanging around long enough for me to get a decent shot of it, or study at any great lenghts.

Come down to the Lebanon Hills Visitor Center, in Eagan, there is a nesting pair right above the front door (on top of the light fixture). They usually arrive spring time for their first batch, and the past couple of years they later have another batch of young ones.

    • Except for the fact that to Hillary Minneapolis/ St Paul is rural fly over territory. Outstate doesn't even exist and I would rather that rural areas are left to make their own choices rather than have what they do be dictated by the Capital.    If you ever ran a small city hall and saw the additional dollars it takes to do an infrastructure project with the USDA involved you might think a bit differently about all the " help" big government provides. 
    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
