Blue Grosbeak! - 20 Aug 2017
After dipping on the Blue Grosbeak yesterday I had the opportunity to look for it/them again this morning. I dropped Robin off at Lake Erie Metropark and had an hour to look for the bird(s). So, I drove down Roberts Road with the hopes of seeing/hearing it/them.
As I passed the large hill on my left I scanned the open field beyond the fence and spotted a bird perched on the trees at the edge of the burm. Score! Blue Grosbeak male in the open and singing.
Another nemesis bird down! Finally some nice images of a rare bird to SE Michigan.
