I spent the morning finding birds for a couple Indiana birders. They are in a friendly competition that allows them to bird within a 100 mile radius and Barry County just so happens to be in their radius. On their way north, they took some time and birded with me this morning in hopes of adding a good list of birds to their list.
Well, we did just that. in just 3hrs, we tallied 55 species; 26 of which were all birds needed for their year competition list. Woohoo!!! Gems such as Hooded Warbler, Sora, Bobolink, Chestnut-sided Warbler, Least Sandpiper, and many more were all new for their list. It was a beautiful morning to be out. The bird of the day was probably a cooperative Cerulean Warbler willing to pose for some quick photos.
Don’t forget about our FREE bird walk tomorrow morning (Sat, May 9). We meet at the Wild Birds Unlimited in Portage.
