Birding (and more) in Calhoun County and beyond
One of my favorite birds is but a mere 72 minutes away from where I sit now. A Swallow-tailed Kite has managed to elude quite a large swath of the country, and find its way to St. Johns, Michigan. It makes me nearly want to turn off my eBird alerts. The only hope I have is that it manages to hang around until Saturday. As this is going to be a very unbalanced week.
My weak attempt for some balance was visiting 23 Mile Road cow pasture again. While the Baird's was present, much less water was. The Starlings noticeably have started to move in, and appears many shorebirds are being displaced. This is probably just as well since the Warbler are starting to move in, and it may well be time to move on to my next targets:
My exploits in my latest passion, Birding...not Bird-watching;-)
