Sightings

Bill Roth 23 April had some nice sightings today. I traveled down to Pinconning Park and Nayanquing Pt in Linwood . A Wilson’s Snipe, a Great Horned Owl with Owlets in an old Baldie nest (very hard to photo because over 1/4 mile away), Blue winged Teal ( many), Flock of 15 American White Pelicans, Yellowlegs and something I never expected, a Tri colored Heron. Didn’t realize how small they are. I saw it feeding along bay shore and then it flew up onto a dead ash. Was posing for me for several minutes and able to get very close to the Heron. If anyone is traveling downstate, try to hit this area right now, many birds. Just contact me and will give you directions and try to be of help.

Owlet

Story of owlet saved at Greenbush Golf course by David & Ruth Golm. Owlet discovered along roadside while walking. After many phone calls the ARK group in St. helen suggested to build a cage around it to protect from predators & hopefully mom would return to feed & save. Beach towel was used to move into cage & help protect from 20 degree night temps. Owlet survived night, but NO sign of mom visit. So at 4pm Golm’s transported Owlet to Tawas for ARK rep to return to rehab area for future growth. Chick gobbled down 4 mice once in new transport cage. Hope it will survive & be returned to Gbgcpro in the near future.
