Kirtland's Warbler, male, northern Michigan, today.
I'm up in Presque Isle County, in the northeastern corner of Michigan's lower peninsula. This is a truly magical place, and in two days we've seen 110 species of birds, and many other cool animals. In a nocturnal foray this evening, we surprised a big porcupine, and I've got some great photos of that prickly beast.
We've also got out own private stash of Kirtland's Warblers, and these big sluggish warblers are ridicuously tame.
Much more to come, including lots of interesting photos. Not much time to blog, though, but I'll try to toss some tidbits out there over the next week...
