May 10 - Berrien County
Late this morning I heard and saw a Worm-eating Warbler in the northern section of Warren Dunes State Park. It was located just west of the west end of Floral Lane which is 1.5 miles north of the main park entrance on Red Arrow Highway. We actually first found the bird along the trail leading south of the west end of the road, but later it was singing to the north of the trail that heads west into the dunes towards the beach. (Labeled the Blue Jay Trail, I believe...)
Earlier in the day I found a couple of Prairie Warblers at a location in the park that offers a bit easier access than the "traditional" location along the Blue Jay Trail to the far west of Floral Lane. To reach this location enter the park via the main entrance and turn right towards the campground after passing the entrance booths. Before reaching the campground you'll see a parking area and a picnic shelter on the left. Park here and follow the trail leading west into a large open dune area. Follow the trail for a couple of hundred yards over level terrain until it begins to climb noticeably up a rise. At this point veer left off the trail towards the wooded dune ahead and to the left. The birds were singing from the brushy habitat at the base of this dune.
