Subject: [birders] Eastern Towhee; Sandhill Cranes
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.
