This past weekend was a good time to head north. There were lots of birds to be seen. Some of the highlights follow:
HAWK OWL -- Two locations. Same as previously reported. Corner of M28 and McCabe. And also about 1.5 miles east of Pickford.
ROUGH - LEGGED HAWK ---- One seen along Hwy 129
N. SHRIKE --- Seen along 9 Mile Road
PURPLE FINCH ---- Seen at many locations
COMMON REDPOLLS --- Seen at many locations.
PINE SISKINS ---- Very common at many locations.
ROUGH GROUSE ---- Seen a few times
ROBIN ---- One at Dunbar. And also a small flock along Hyw 123.
WW CROSSBILLS --- Several at Taq Falls visitor center.
BOHEMIAN WAXWINGS --- A flock of about 35 along Hwy 123 about 4 to 5 miles north of Eckerman.
EVENING GROSBEAKS ---- A flock of three dozen about 5 miles west of I-75 on M 28. Just east of Midway Road at 7767 West M28.
AND... a flock of 40+ at a feeder on Hyw 123 east of the entrance to the Lower Falls at Taqmnon. This is on the south side of the road about 1/4 mile east of the '76' gas station. There were dozens of birds coming to the feeder. Many species present. Quite a sight.
PINE GROSBEAKS --- Scattered sighting throughtout the area.
Three visits, over two days, to Hulbert Bog produced no birds.
