Dickcissels in Macomb County

During certain years, usually related to a drought or a loss of habitat, Dickcissels have an irruption year in Michigan. So I have been seeing multiple reports of them around the state and wondering if they were going to show up in Macomb County… today Brandon Aho and Beth Murphy both found Dickcissels within a couple miles of each other… I got to the location that Brandon found them and Diane Miller was on them and had been photographing them for awhile… Thanks you Diane for pointing them out… They were easy to find and offered some decent range photos… there song is so awesome!!  22 mi east of North Ave there is a sub being built south of 22 and they are in the fields near the dead end where the subdivison ends…
