Yet another Muskegon birding trip Part I
On Saturday August 17th, I made yet another trip to Muskegon to do some birding. The difference between this trip and all of my others is that this time I wasn’t alone. This was a field trip put on by the Muskegon County Nature Club, which I am thinking of joining.
After this trip, I’m not sure that I am cut out for group birding yet. I also found out that there is a Grand Rapids group that is very similar, so I think that I should check it out as well.
Anyway, I was a little late meeting up with the group, because I stopped on my way to shoot this hawk.
I could give you the boring story of introducing myself to members of the group, and how we drove around from spot to spot while looking for birds, but I won’t, I’ll get right to the photos.
Here’s a lifer for me, I wish that the photos were better.
Here’s another lifer for me, a Bonaparte’s gull.
I am going to end part one with this shot of a great blue heron in flight.
You’ll want to see part two, for more of the extremely difficult to ID shorebirds, and the heron and some gulls performing a bird ballet!
That’s it for this one, thanks for stopping by!
