This morning, Brad Murphy, Scott Terry, and I found an adult Glossy Ibis along the southern edge of the Long Pond Unit at Pointe Mouillee SGA. It soon flew and relocated in the southwest corner of the Bloody Run Unit. It seemed very content feeding in the canal that runs along the west edge of the Bloody Run and in the wet corn stubble field.
Best way to reach this area would be to park at the Mouillee Creek parking lot along Old Dixie Hwy. Walk out until you reach the corner of the Bloody Run Unit. For reference, you will need to walk out past the Walpatich Unit, the pump station, and then the Lautenslager Unit (which will be to the north).
Other interesting birds from today:
1 American Bittern in Long Pond
9 White-rumped Sandpipers in Cell 2
4 Black Terns in Vermet Unit
2 Yellow-headed Blackbirds in Long Pond (northwest corner)
