While out surveying for the MI Breeding Bird Atlas, I
found a singing Clay-colored Sparrow in northern
Bridgewater Twp. The bird was located in the brushy
habitat just south of 12114 Bemis Rd (the stretch
between Ernst and Schneider Rds). There is a # 9 gas
line sign along the road as well.

On a more disappointing note, mowing has taken its
toll on some of my count area's grassland bird
populations - fields that previously harbored Bobolink
and Dickcissel were now eerily quiet. Very
Good birding,
Jacco G.
