Temps were cool (20's) and skies were dark and overcast. I was surprised to see so many cars in the parking lot at Mouillee Creek, and would later learn that this was day-two of an extended duck hunting season. I would pass many a duck hunter as I rode the Middle Causeway toward the Banana Unit.
I looped Cell 3 and rode along the Lake Erie shoreline, stopping long enough to see a Great Horned Owl fly along the NE shoreline and perching for several minutes along the shoreline. I would loop Cell 1 but not see any more owls. I decided to then ride along Roberts Rd. back to the Mouillee Creek entrance and back to the car.
A quick drive down Haggerman Road yielded only a single American Kestrel.
