We made the trip over to Alger County today to see the Green Violet-ear pictured above. This is about 2 1/2 hours west of Whitefish Point. Congrats and thanks to Scott Hickman for informing the birding community of the bird's presence, and to the Hust's for welcoming birders to their home. The pair of Ruby-throateds pictured below, also at the Hust's, were obviously enjoying the beautiful summer's day.
We've gone nocturnal again running the summer owl banding. We haven't caught any juvenile Saw-whets yet, but are getting a handful of adults nightly.
