New DICKCISSELS continue to found in Isabella County.
While atlasing in Isabella Township, one male was discovered
1/4 of a mile north of Beal City Road on Summerton Road in
and weedy areas around oil equipment. (An Orchard Oriole was
also at this location.) A second male was discovered in an
alfalfa field on Vernon Road 1/2 mile east of Whiteville
Road. Both are easily observable and in a township conducive
to many grassland breeding birds including Grasshopper
Sparrow (Denver Road west of Crawford, southside).
