The Urban Birder

For the last two days, I've had a great time birding and hanging out with David Lindo, The Urban Birder, from London.

We started out yesterday with some great looks at roosting Northern Saw-Whet Owl and a brief look at roosting Long-eared Owls.  We also managed to come up with a Cackling Goose in a Canada Goose flock on the side of the highway.

The rest of the day saw a steady stream of birds, with fewer surprises.  We covered the full county from north to south and ended up with over 50 species for the day.

This morning we started off the day with another owl; a red-morph Eastern Screech-Owl roosting in the rafters of a barn on private property in Clinton Township.

We scoured several other areas for a few hours, but the wind and clear skies seemed to work against us before we called it a day in mid-afternoon.  Lots of urban birding and great birds.  We'll have to do it again!
