First Northern Michigan Birding Gathering - An Overview
Forground: My son Keith, My daughter Kierstyn, Myself
Background: Jill, Bert's Husband, Bert, Kim
Debbi took the picture. Mitch also joined us,however, he had to leave before we took the picture.

Finally, I can report back on the field trip to Debbi's home. We had a wonderful time meeting together and birdwatching on Debbi's property. She and her husband live in a paradise. It is no small task getting to their home as they live app. 2 miles down an all but two track road. I think the highlight of the bird outing was the opportunity to view a Bluebird couple and their nesting sight in an old stump not 3 feet off the ground. It was the first time I'd seen Bluebirds nesting in a "natural" housing. Thank you so very much Debbi for having us over. It was a very pleasant day. Here's a listing of our sightings : 

Yellow Rumped Warbler
Black and White Warbler
Rose-Breasted Grosbeak
Great Crested Flycatcher
Baltimore Orioles
R. W. Blackbirds
Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker
Wood Thrush
Song Sparrow
Turkey Vulture
Geat Blue Heron
Eastern Bluebird
Tree Sparrow
Chipping Sparrow
Hairy Woodpecker

    My place of 11 acres is with pond, cedar swamp, highlands, and some hardwood growth. Excellent habitat for birds. Presently wood ducks in pond, green herons, and usual flow of paserines. Indigos, Rose Breasted Grossmans (story later),..will stay tuned.
