I scoped Tricolored Heron and Snowy Egret from the Banana at the junction of 
cell 3 and 4. The Snowy Egret was on a small island in the Humphrey’s Unit 
that was loaded with Bonaparte’s Gulls and terns. Seeing the Tricolored was a 
fluke. I was scoping egrets at the former heron rookery in the Humprey’s Unit 
when the Tricolored Heron flew into my scope view and landed on the edge of a 
large bank of cattails across a channel behind the rookery island. It was 
visible there for a while before disappearing. 


It is fall already at least according to the shorebird calendar with a dozen 
Lesser Yellowlegs and 3 Short-billed Dowitchers in cell 3. 


Had a male Yellow-headed Blackbird fly from the Humphrey’s Unit into the 
Vermet Unit. 


Cheers,

Zach Gayk and I encountered a Loggerhead Shrike in the Grand Sable Dunes of 
Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore west of Grand Marais late this morning. Its 
location can be accessed by parking in the small parking lot that is on the 
south side of H58 immediately northeast of AuSable Lake. Walk across H58, go 
about 40 yards or so to the west, and then hike about 1/2 mile north along the 
main foot path that goes directly north through the dunes. This should put you 
in the vicinity of where we saw the bird last. It was hunting along the west 
side of a large, open sand bowl. Hiking up and down these large sand dunes is 
physically challenging. Scott

Birders,

Once I arrived at 5:30pm I heard the bird call three times and then not again. 
My advice is to get here early. I'll be going back in the morning to try to see 
the bird and will report back.

Hi all, Just an update. We are seeing and hearing the Bell's Vireo on the south 
side of the road between the last two driveways, before the parking area. At 
1:00 PM on Wednesday June 8th.

The Portage Marsh bird is continuing this morning. It is extremely active
and in a dense area. Be patient and wait for the bird to move to an exposed
perch to see it, as it is moving a lot.

We had the Bell's Vireo at 4pm this afternoon. Singing, easy to find.
Thanks to all who've posted about this great U.P. bird.

The Willet that Kim Laskowski found at Bay City SRA on June 6th continues
this morning, June 7th.  Turn into the beach side of the park and turn
right to the east end of the park.  There's a sandy trail that goes out to
the beach past the spray park and playscape.  The Willet was to the right
at the shoreline from the trail.

The four Cattle Egrets were just to the 'west' of the sandy trail on the
south edge of the beach wetland.

Good birding!

No apologies are necessary as this was an absolutely appropriate post. You
(Elliot) forwarded a very rare bird report to the appropriate community
with the appropriate skeptisism. Next time such a report could result in a
life bird for many of us.

A picture of an American Oystercatcher that was geotagged at Lake Michigan
was posted a couple of hours ago to the Michigan Bird Watching Facebook
group and reposted to Mich-Listers a bit ago. The original poster states
that the photo was taken at Meinert Park in Muskegon County. Given the
geotag I would highly suggest anyone in the area go check this out. No
details yet on when the photo was taken.

Bird on!

Subject: Bobwhite Monroe County
From: Karl Overman <martineoverman AT att.net>
Date: Wed, 1 Jun 2016 17:01:58 -0400
This afternoon i found a pair of Bobwhite at Munson Park on the west side of 
the city of Monroe. I first heard some clucking sounds near me in a weedy field 
with scattered shrubs, then I spotted the male’s head just a few feet from me 
just before the pair sprang into the air. Munson Park is loaded with soccer 
fields for most of the area with parking. To reach the area where I saw the 
quail, park at the north end of the park and walk the mowed trail through the 
field to the north to a shaky footbridge. After successfully crossing the 
bridge there is a large weedy field with a large pile of saw dust (I think) in 
the SE corner of the field. That was the area where I saw the quail. 


At Point Mouillee still good numbers of Semipalmated Sandpipers. I had one 
Whimbrel and two Red Knots today. 


Cheers,

Karl Overman

Seen at 12:10 flying over highway and then tree line just north of Main St, Ann

shape, white wing patches, flapping behavior.

The Summer Tanager found by Karl Overman at Oakwoods Metropark is still
present.  It's at the junction of the Long Bark Trail and the shortcut to
the Big Tree Trail.

Howdy all, 

The Eurasian Tree Sparrow is here at the Whitefish Point feeders for yet

other times it is there waiting for you.

Birders,

Sorry for this late report, but getting up at 3 a.m. to do bird surveys
leaves me too sleepy when I get home to post.

So, yesterday (May 27), I saw a Marbled Godwit at Fish Point SWA, Tuscola
County, at about 1:30 p.m. It was in shallow water northeast of the
observation tower, about 300 yards down the diked path to the east (on the
north side). Other shorebirds were also present, including Black-bellied
Plovers and Dunlin. There could have been other species, but I did not walk
the dikes so didn't cover the area thoroughly.

Subject: Summer Tanager Wayne Co.
From: Karl Overman <martineoverman AT att.net>
Date: Fri, 27 May 2016 17:13:31 -0400
Late this morning I found a singing immature male Summer Tanager at Oakwoods 
Metropark in southern Wayne County. I am not familiar with the trail system in 
the park so describing where the bird was will be less than perfect. I had 
walked the Long Bark Trail along the Huron River until it cut away from the 
river and into the woods. At some point I came to a T junction in the woods and 
that is where the Summer Tanager was singing. Perhaps on the Big Tree Trail. 
All I know is I walked a long way in the woods after seeing the Summer Tanager. 


The park was good for warblers today as I picked up Wilson’s, Chestnut-sided, 
Hooded, Blue-winged, Prothonotary and Yellow-breasted Chat. 


A link to a photo of the tanager in my flickr account is:

Birders,

Just in case no one cares to post...

I got an eBird year need alert for a Kentucky Warbler in Washtenaw Co., It is 
located at Stinchfield Woods, I'm sure it is the usual suspect of a male trying 
to find a mate, singing nonstop, so it goes without saying that using playbacks 
would be dumb, don't worry about that NatGeo pic.

I found two Franklin's Gulls at Muskegon Wastewater System. Right now they are 
loafing in the middle aeration cell along with Ring-billed Gulls. They have 
broad white eye-arcs, large white primary tips and their back and wings are 
darker gray than the RBGs. They are also smaller than the RBGs. Will include 
photos with my eBird post.

The female Ruff is still present at Fish Point. It is in the recently burned 
marsh. Not quite half way up the dyke on the East edge of the burn there is a 
large mud flat arching out from the dyke. It was with a Wilson's Phalarope in 
the water just off that mud in the direction of the tern roost.

This afternoon Paul Berrigan and I saw the Black-necked Stilt at Fish Point, 
Tuscola County where it has been since late April. It was in an eastern section 
of the marsh, visible from the Tower as well as by walking out the southern 
dike. 


The State plans on burning the marsh when wind conditions are right and one 
would suspect that would cause the Stilt to move on.

I found a male Hooded Warbler along with Paul Revard, Craig Schafer, and
Matt Hogan today, May 14th at Bay City State Park.  It popped up on a stack
of ash logs on the 'east' edge of the woodlot as you head toward the lagoon
from the nature center.  It was briefly observed but did not sing nor was
it seen after that initial look.

I also found a Snowy Egret just north of Linwood Rd feeding along the
Saginaw Bay shoreline today, May 14th.

Good birding,

Date: Sat, 14 May 2016 19:39:18 -0400
Around 4:45 this evening I turned off of HWY129 east onto M48 just south of
Pickford MI. I was on the phone but out of the corner of my eye north of
the road I saw araptor flying low over the field. I assumed Harrier given
it was cruising fast and low and relatively large. But something seemed not
right. I told the person I was on the phone with I had to go and pulled
over. Put the bins up and immediately know it was not a harrier. Tan/gray
back, steady semi-rapid wing beats, and wings that came to a point. The
bird quickly flew south and I pulled a u turn and sped towards it. Within a
minute  the bird was south of 48 and west of 129. I put the peddle to the
meddle and got out of the car when I was as close as I could get.  Got bin
views of the bird cruising with broad wings but that narrowed at the tips
and with really long tail.  Then started to circle and increase altitude.
Got a view with great lighting showing tan/grey back and a darker cap with
lighter face and chin on bird. Still increasing In altitude I got a scope
on it and watched bird head higher and off south west. This bird was
overall far to big and to uniform in color to be a peregrine falcon. It's
wings were too pointed and wing beats to quick and steady for Gowshawk, and
the low fast flying over the fields was not characteristic for much else.

I hesitated to post because a) this doesn't seem chaseable and b) because
this was a crazy brief encounter with a crazy rare bird quite a bit later
then should be expected. But despite that this bird was clearly a falcon
and clearly there is no other one that fits the description other then
Gyrfalcon. Just a reminder of you are in the North Huron Birding area to
keep your eyes peeled for the unexpected.

Bird on!

seen in the grassy islands west of Cell 3 in Humphries Unit. American White 
Pelicans were out there too, and overall a nice array of shorebirds.

Ryan Dziedzic just called to say he and a group from Kalamazoo found a
female type Ruff at Fish Point.  It's among yellowlegs on the east side of
the impoundment.  Park at the tower, cross the ditch over the bridge, walk
east then go north about 250' from the pump shack.

Good Birding!

From: Jim Dawe <jimdawe AT hotmail.com>

Dear Mich-listers:
Devon Miller, Lyle and Edwin Bontrager and I went to Tawas Point today, 05/09, 
to chase the previously reported Western Tanager. We had several brief looks at 
the bird, grown quite skittish since its initial appearance two days ago and no 
longer feeding on the oranges at the feeders by the lighthouse parking lot 
(though still in the same general area). To our surprise, a Eurasian Tree 
Sparrow had also been discovered at these feeders just before we arrived and 
was providing great views to many birders.

Adult Harris's sparrow seen at 10:45 am today at Harbor Island (Grand
Haven).  For those not familiar with this area, from US 31 take Jackson
(main intersection just south of the bridge over the Grand River) west and
continue to 3rd St.  Turn right on 3rd and travel over the bridge.  Stay on
the main road.  After a big curve to the right, there is an intersection
with another road that goes left toward the boat launch.  The bird was seen
at this intersection.  Last seen on the ground near the yellow barricades
at this corner.

Just so everyone knows, the road to the parking lot where you can observe this 
bird at Tawas State Park has been closed. High north winds have caused waves to 
wash the road away.. You must park where the dumpsters are and walk in. This is 
a lot farther, so if you have a physical condition stopping you, it may be 
tough. WR

Dan Duso found a Western Tanager at the oriole feeders at Tawas Point State
Park this afternoon, May 7th.  It was coming in with orioles.  Others are
at the point as I type to try to re-find it.  I believe Dan said that Phil
Odum saw it as well.  He sent me an image and it appears to be basic
plumaged with just reddish color on its forehead and a bit beneath its
lower mandible.  Otherwise bright yellow with dark wings.  I'm posting an
image on saginawbaybirding.org but it's a photo of a photo of a photo.
You'll get the picture once you see it.

Great bird!

Just a follow-up to yesterday's post on the Snowy Egret.  I've changed my
ID on this bird to Snowy Egret X Little Blue Heron Here's my eBird write-up
on this bird.

 The dreaded hybrid...SNEG is clearly the dominant DNA in this bird but the
light mottling on its primaries and neck/head, along with the darker
feathers on its lower belly, to me, suggests LBHE DNA in the mix. First
spring LBHE clearly possess that mottled appearance. I should have given it
clearer consideration before entering it on eBird as SNEG. The other
feature that stood out to me in the field was the long bill on the bird as
being unusual for SNEG. The size of this bird was nearly half the size of
nearby GREG and it had black legs with yellow feet.
