I birded northwestern Allegan County this morning. The highlight was
a nice look at a Red-throated Loon flying north on Lake Michigan at
Douglas Beach. Douglas Beach is just north of Center Street in Douglas.
Also seen in Allegan County this morning was a flock of over 500
Sandhill Cranes east off 62nd between 128th and 127th. I counted over
200 before I realized I hadn't gotten to the largest part of the flock
Near the Todd Farm Unit south of 116tn again on 62nd was a single
Lapland Longspur in a flock of Horned Larks. They were on a manured
filed on the east side of the road. I heard it's rattle and then got
a good look at the longspur between trips of the manure spreader.
