birding around the country and around the world
Featured Bird for December 2003:
Lake Erie Metropark
42.07 N 83.19 W
This is a wonderful spot for raptors in the fall. They come around the western end of Lake Erie and fly right over your head! The Point Mouillee State Game Area is just south of here. The wetlands and marshes are good for rails, gulls, wading birds and shorebirds, especially during migration.
Mio / Grayling
44.40 N 84.08 W
This is where you must go if you want to see the Kirtland's Warbler. Visit from mid-May to late June. This rare warbler nests only in young Jack Pines.
Sault St. Marie
46.48 N 84.30 W
A winter visit should add some new birds to your life list! Great Gray Owls, Snowy Owls, Sharp-tailed Grouse and Snow Buntings can be found by driving through the open country south of town. A Gyrfalcon is regularly seen on the electric power plant roof near the canal locks. Watch for Bohemian Waxwings in residential areas.
46.46 N 84.58 W
April is the time to look for winter specialties and early spring migrants. Loons, Winter Wrens, Evening Grosbeaks, Gray Jays and much more. Stay in Paradise -- with 30 foot snow piles along main street.
Featured Hot Spot:
Falls of the Ohio
38.28 N 85.76 W
Across the river from Louisville, Kentucky, this can be a great birding spot when the Ohio River is low in late summer and early fall. Rarities like Baird's Sandpiper and Buff-breasted Sandpipers have been seen here. In winter, interesting gull species may appear at any time.
