While doing some work this afternoon at the Secrest Nature Preserve in Superior Township, it was nice to hear an Eastern Towhee. I had heard and seen several earlier this spring, but it's nice to know that some are still around. I also saw and heard three very noisy Sandhill Cranes in the adjacent farm field (which happens to be protected by the County with a conservation easement).
The Secrest Nature Preserve isn't open to the public yet, but hopefully everyone will be able to explore its wonders in the future, perhaps by next year. I will post to the list when the Southeast Michigan Land Conservancy has their opening announcement. Understandably, the uncertainties of this year have set plans back a bit.
