Grasshopper Sparrow on the Osprey Trail at Stony Creek Metropark

This bird was quite the surprise today… A very early Grasshopper Sparrow on the Osprey Trail at Stony Creek Metropark… On ebird I don’t see a single individual recorded in March in the last 10 years… With such a mild winter, it makes me wonder if this bird over-wintered since its at least 4-5 weeks away from showing up in Michigan…

 

It was on the trail that goes thru the meadow… follow from the parking lot until it forks and part of the trail heads back toward the water… that is where it was feeding with some Song Sparrows..
