Yesterday (11/20), a few of The Peeps, us Michigan young birders, went over
Ottawa/Allegan counties, and Jim McGrath and myself went to Port Huron
>From about 9:45am saturday (although first seen around 9:20) to 10:45 (when
we left) we
watched the juvenile Sabine's Gull fly stunningly close to the south pier at
Park.To best observe the bird we walked out on the pier to where it curves,
where we didn't
get so wet,and watched the gull as it not only flew by extremely close, but
also landed on
the water and even on the pier at one point. I belive all three of us
managed to pull off a
few execellent pictures of the gull that we could post later.
Muskegon Wastewater had 4 Trumpeter Swans that only stayed for about 10
We could not locate the Snowy Owl in Ottawa County.
At Douglas Public Beach we had about 10-12 Black Scoters and a few Surf
Scoters mixed in.
Today at the Lighthouse Park in Port Huron we had some excellent views of
all that Mike
Sefton posted plus some nice looks at a Red-throated Loon around 9:45. We
also came back
and saw the Harlequin still around later that afternoon.
