Misc sightings…

Migration is slowly picking up… I got a call from Andy Weirauch that there were Pine Warbler and Yellow-rumps at a small park in Sterling Heights… There were at least 30 Yellow-rumped Warblers and 2 Pine Warblers… I also had Ruby Crowned Kinglets… LSCMP has a huge number of Sora and Virginia Rail and yesterday I found 3 Common Gallinule in the South Marsh.. Woods have been slow except an influx of White-throated Sparrows and a couple of Brown Thrashers on the trails behind the nature center… I am still seeing Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers although the numbers are declining as we get ready to move into may.. This morning I had some Blue-gray Gnatcatchers and a female Purple finch on the trails behind the center… Rusty Blackbirds can still be found in the flooded area of the Maple Woods at the end of the service drive.
