Highlights: Cave Swallow, Pine Grosbeak, Northern Cardinal, and Bohemian Waxwing

The weather was absolutely beautiful today and there was some productive birding. The Cave Swallow was seen multiple times until around 3:00 today, this record requires acceptance by the Michigan Bird Records Committee. Other sightings in the woods included Barred Owl, Pileated Woodpecker, Winter Wren, Pine and Evening Grosbeak, and Common Redpoll. Snow Buntings (photo above) continue frequenting the beach. Cory had a nice flight out at the waterbird count today, including nice close passes along the shoreline by Bonaparte's Gulls (photo below)

Feeders: Ruffed Grouse, Northern Cardinal, Northern Shrike (not there for the seed), Harris's Sparrow, Lapland Longspur and Evening Grosbeak
