Hello Birders and Friends, By now most birders in SE Michigan are aware that a Kirtland's Warbler was discovered at Dolph Park, in Ann Arbor, and was seen by MOBS of birders. It was last seen on the far Northeast side of the park, actually out of the park boundaries. With favorable winds and no rain predicted, the bird is likely to complete its migration tonight, but it is always worth checking in the morning, to see if it is still there.
I want to let you all know that Natural Area Preservation Division of Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation, (NAP) where I work as the ornithologist, has a restoration workday planned at Dolph Park tomorrow, so there are likely to be a dozen or more volunteers in amongst the trees South of First Sister Lake, from 1-4:00 pm, probably pulling garlic mustard, in this beautiful area full of wildflowers, to give the flowers a chance to stay healthy and spread. Please be courteous to each other and know we all care for the health of Dolph Park and it's flora and fauna, and birds, of course. The workday leaders have been updated that tomorrow may be especially full of warblers and birders, so they will know to expect you!!
