Adam Byrne and I  birded the southwest corner of the state on Sunday, June 
19th. Fairly uneventful, but we did check out the previously reported 
EURASAIN COLLARED DOVES at Three Oaks in Berrien County. There have been 2 
birds present since May that look like "pure' EURASIAN COLLARD DOVES, while 
1 bird had been questionable (possble hybrid) as it was missing tail 
feathers when initially discovered. Those tail feathers missing in May have 
grown back and were seen today....and the 1 bird in question looks like a 
hybrid, not a "pure" EC DOVE. To recap: 2 EURASIAN COLLARED DOVES and 1 
hybrid DOVE remain present at Three Oaks (village park, corner of Ash and 
Elm Streets), as of June 19th.

The previously reported CHUCK-WILL'S-WIDOW was reported on the morning of 
June 18th, near Long Lake Road and Jones Road intersection.

2 WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPERS were seen at Three Oaks Sewage Ponds on June 17th.

Good Birding,

Jon Wuepper
