Cackling Goose at Stony Creek Metropark

I got a call from Kevin Rysiewski last night while I was driving home from Cleveland… He had just found 14 Cackling Geese at Mt. Vernon Picnic Area… It was gonna be dark before I got back to Michigan, so I got up at dawn and headed there before work… Brian Mcgee had the same idea and we both arrived around the same time at dawn… The Cackling Geese were easily found in a large flock of Canada Geese… I grabbed some photos and headed off to work….   Later in the day I took a walk at Lk St. Clair Metropark and found a Coopers Hawk Making a nest near Huron Point… It was fun watching the Coopers fly to the ground and gather sticks to take up to the nest…  I spied a Horned Grebe off of the point…. 1000 or more ducks between LSCMP and the DNR Boat Launch…. Bring a scope and you never know what you will find… A Red-necked Grebe was still present at the DNR area…
