Highlights: Western Kingbird, Scissor-tailed Flycatcher

We received reports of the Western Kingbird & Scissor-tailed Flycatcher on the 2nd. The Kingbird was seen at the tip, efforts to relocate it were unsuccessful. The Scissor-tailed was seen around the parking area at the Harbor in the evening. It was not relocated the following morning. However, it was seen just north of the mouth of the Tahquamenon River on the evening of the 3rd.

Although the official spring research season is over, this has been a late spring up here and the migration continues. Recent reports include; Purple Martin, Lawrence's Warbler, Boreal Chickadee (photo above), Northern Mockingbird, and Black-backed Woodpecker (photo below).
