well, we finally got a chance to do some birding. We went to Muskegon Wastewater and were pleasantly surprised. The first bird we saw was a Mature Bald Eagle. Next we saw a group of Junco's, and very shortly after that we saw a very large flock of Tree Sparrows. There were Cardinals and Blue Jays mixed in with the Tree Sparrows. We saw huge numbers of Ring-billed Gulls and Mallards, and we then saw a fair amount of Common Mergansers. We almost always see Crows, which we did yesterday. Our most pleasant experience was watching 2 Northern Harriers floating over a stand of trees looking for something to eat. We saw a Rough-legged hawk across from the Harriers in a field-probably looking for something to eat also. We turned around to leave and the Harriers were flying together almost play-like. We are not sure, but they possibly were mating. The last bird we saw on our tour was a Mute Swan. We felt fortunate to have seen such a variety of birds here, as it was windy. For some reason we don't see the birds as much when it is windy. We haven't been out birding in such a long time, it just seemed good!!
