Spring better come soon or else I am gonna go crazy….

So I have been doing a little bit of car birding lately… I am so sick of winter, I do not feel like climbing out of my car and freezing… I have visited the dump off of 28 mi rd in New Haven a few times… I am looking for Thayer’s Gulls or Lesser Black-Backed Gulls… No luck yet…. There are plenty of Herring, Ring-billed, Greater Black-backed and Glaucous Gulls in various cycles… I am not a great “gull” birder, but I am working on it… The other day I had a Juvenile Bald Eagle fly by the dump… that was cool and there are many Red-tailed Hawks around…

On Saturday I took a run up to Port Huron to look at all the Long-tailed Ducks… there were thousands of them… there also were Common Goldeneye, Red-breasted Merganser and Bufflehead near the bridge and Redhead and Canvasbacks up the river by downtown…
