Subject: [birders] calling scientific teacher types who like children
A customer of ours who has a very bright young son and is involved home
schooling him and with others who are doing the same would like to find some
scientifically oriented people who like to work with bright children for an
event that is planned for about 2-3 weeks from now. I have no details to
offer other than she is one of the most enthusiastic and bright mothers I've
ever met. She has done things with her young son like build a river in their
front yard. She is the perfect home school mother: encouraging,
enthusiastic, always looking for more interesting things to share with her
son and his equally bright friends, always exposing him to new things.

Her email is <ceceliaober...> and she would welcome your help. Tell her
Sally sent you.

Subject: [birders] Birding Dayton, Ohio ~ Go to Brukner Nature Center west of Troy
About 13 miles before you reach the Dayton area (at I-75 and I-70), there's
Troy, Ohio, and I always stop at Brukner Nature Center (http://www.
bruknernaturecenter.com/directions.html) and tour the trails there. It's
still early but you just might get a Louisiana Waterthrush in the valley
along the creek behind the center (if present, they are usually singing
loudly), definitely a Pileated woodpecker, kinglets, and maybe Yellow-rumps
are starting to arrive. It may be too early for Northern Parula and
Yellow-Throated Warblers but walk Stillwater Loop trail and listen near the
river for both. There's an entry fee ($2.50 a person) -- pay in the center
(I'm a member so I get free admission) and check out the center's feeders
upstairs where last year there were Purple Finches.

Most of the trails are hardened dirt but there may be mud if it's rainy
this week. If your friend can't navigate the climb down behind the center,
walk the trails to the south of the center where it's flat but still birdy.
(Avoid the swamp boardwalk because it's usually covered with water this
early in the spring; however, the waterthrush hang out there too.)

Buck Creek State Park is the birdiest place to go. It's farther east past
Springfield.

According to eBird, Englewood Metropark and Eastwood Metropark should be
good birding sites. Too bad you aren't heading down more toward mid-April
when the migrating passerines are on the move through west central Ohio.

Enjoy!

Subject: [birders] a little more Dayton Ohio information
Hello all,
I had checked ebird and I also looked at the Dayton Audubon favorite
places. I am wondering if anyone has more personal experiences there.
As I said in my earlier email, my companion has trouble walking right
now so I was looking for easily accessed places with paved paths if
possible.

I passed a lone Great Egret this morning north of Lakeville in northern Oakland County. First time I've seen them in the area before late April.

Subject: [birders] birding Dayton, Ohio
Hello all,
We are taking a trip down to Dayton this coming weekend to visit
family. I would like to get out for a few hours Wednesday somewhere
in the vicinity. I was wondering if any of you have birded that area
or know of good preserves of maybe mixed (woodland and pond) habitat
where walking is not a chore. My companion is going in for a hip
replacement in less than a month, so although he can walk, some paths
are better than others.
Thanks!
Pat Burden

Subject: [birders] The Ann Arbor Breeding Bird Survey kickoff is coming on April 13
Hello Ann Arbor area birders,

With Spring's arrival, why not consider volunteering for Ann Arbor's Breeding Bird Survey? We survey for birds in many Ann Arbor parks and natural areas. Basically what happens is that our Breeding Bird Survey volunteers will take responsibility for surveying one park or several parks. This involves a minimum of about 3-4 visits to the park and of a length of time that allows you to walk through the whole park well enough to learn what birds you are hearing and seeing. We have a "protocol" for you to follow. It's as simple as walking through the park and noting what birds you see or hear. There is a quantitative component where you count birds as well. We train you how to follow the protocol and you can call me for any technical support that you would need. The actual survey takes place at times of your choosing between mid May to Mid July. Most folks end up spending a total of 4-5 hours in their park over the summer and perhaps as much as another hour on clerical work that gets the gathered data in place. We use eBird to record all of our survey data. You'll need to have the ability to identify most birds by sight and sound, but somewhat less experienced birders can participate, as well, with my support.

If you are interested in participating, please contact me and register for the April 13th kickoff meeting. It will be held this year at Natural Area Preservation Headquarters, 3875 E. Huron River Drive, from 7-8:30 p.m. If you cannot attend the kickoff, but would still like to participate, please contact me, and I can arrange to train you as to how to conduct the survey.

I hope to hear from many of you! If you have participated in the past, and would like to help again this year, please contact me as well.

Good birding,

Juliet Berger

FOS Eastern Phoebe here at our house this morning. Also, heard Tree Sparrow and (durn it) cowbirds. Noticed the female red-winged blackbirds started showing up in numbers here on Thursday. We’ve been covered up with males (easily 30+), but the girls just started arriving.

Subject: [birders] Saturday morning field trip report
While I posted most of these birds on eBirds, I want to alert folks to some of the highlights of our class outing this morning.
Our first destination was the "fluddle" on Ernst, north of Bethel church to try to relocate Cathy's Wilson's Snipe from late Friday. But we cannot just drive by Scio Church and Parker, right? Our group pulled over and was counting geese, shovelers and other ducks when we looked up at a very high pitched "goose" flying overhead. Orange legs and a broad white tail band confirmed that the (or a) GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE (from Thursday?) had made a return. Congrats to all who heard it before they saw it. Very cool.
Farther along the Ernst Road route we had a rafter of Turkeys putting on quite a show.
The destination WILSON's SNIPE were so hard to see but we have some excellent students who were great spotters today. And then the PECTORAL SANDPIPERS flew in (Yay, Larry!). Bonus Blue-winged teal. Thank you Cathy for the tip!
We had just enough time to do a quick(ish) drive of Gotfredson and Vreeland where we enjoyed watching a Merlin (Taiga) consume what was probably a Red-winged Blackbird.
A GREAT morning for our 80% chance of rain field trip!

From: Edwin Sanchez <chainking...>
Subject: [birders] [OT] Amblin' Ambystomas (salamanders, that is)
Hello All,

The annual migration of salamanders to the breeding ponds in Hudson Mills started last night. Weather conditions are near perfect for the remainder of the week, so I expect that the migration will peak in the next few days.

Mark Irish (Hudson Mills Naturalist) has arranged for the park to stay open late on Sunday evening, when the weather and rain should be ideal.

The park normally closes at 8 this time of year (before the salamanders move). Therefore, special and costly arrangements have to be made to keep it open for our salamander viewing pleasure.

If interested, you are invited to arrive at Hudson Mills at 7:30 pm.

Meet at the Oak Grove parking lot (make right after toll booth, then first left). Bring the following:

Warm clothes
Rain gear and hat
Boots (preferably water proof)
Flashlights

And $5 per person (cash) to offset expenses of park security etc…

We may be handling some animals, so no insect repellent or lotions on your hands, please.

See you then…Eddie

*****

For those of you unfamiliar with this wonderful early spring ritual, here are the basics:

The so-called Mole Salamanders and other species spend almost the entirely of their lives underground. Hence, most nature lovers (like us birders) hardly ever see one.

In late Winter/early Spring when conditions are right (first warm rainy nights), they emerge and migrate (sometimes long distances) to vernal (temporary) ponds within hardwood forests.

The migration only happens after dark. So if you want to see it, you must venture into the dark, rainy woods of late winter. What fun!

Breeding takes place over a week or two and then the salamanders go back underground for the rest of the year. So, here and now is our only chance the seem them in numbers.

The most abundant mole salamanders in Hudson Mills Park are: the Spotted Salamander (Ambystoma maculatum) and the Blue-Spotted (A. laterale). We will see many of each.

Other species are possible, but for that….why don’t you show up and be surprised!

Eddie

PS. See wiki for more info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mole_salamander

Looks very similar to a bird posted on Whatbird. I argued that fit with the middle Ross's from Dea's Sibley link. That looks like a pretty straight base of the bill. Note Sibley's hybrid drawings all show the curve there.

Subject: Re: [birders] Possible Snow/Ross's Goose Parker Scio Rd. Ponds
I found the bird at noon and have pretty good pictures but my computer is down so I can transfer them. The bill is just to large for me, but like Dea, I have limited experience with the outer limits of the species.

Adam Byrne has provided an opinion that the bird can not be called anything and will need to be reported as a Snow/Ross and not a hybrid.

I like to name birds so it sucks when I can't!

Here is a pic from the back of my camera.

Subject: [birders] Northern Shrike in back yard!



I was looking out my kitchen window at the back yard where my feeders are
located. I saw a little junco hopping around, looking for seeds. All of a
sudden, a flash of gray flew down to the ground.

I could hardly believe that it was a Northern Shrike. It quickly killed the
junco and flew off with it.

After 40+ years of watching birds, I've never seen a shrike, and certainly
never thought I would see one in my back yard. I live in a typically
suburban neighborhood in northeast Ann Arbor.

Subject: [birders] Listening to a Continent Sing
So I'm reading the above book by Donald Kroodsma, a birdsong expert, about
his cycling trip across the US with his son. While he actually did record
some things during the bike trip, he went back a few years later to the
same areas and did more extensive recordings. He has QR codes throughout
the book which lead to the recordings he made.

My QR reader on my phone wasn't working with the recordings when I first
started reading the book, so I've been mostly just reading it. However,
tonight I finally broke down and went to the website and started listening.
Most recordings are over a minute long and include a detailed explanation
of what's going on, like whether it's the 'dawn song' or the 'day song' and
how many different songs are included etc. It's all extremely interesting.

Surely there are other cyclist birders (Yes I'm talking about you Dea) who
are reading the book, and I'm wondering what they think the 'best' way to
read it is. With some pages containing several recordings, and those
recordings being often several minutes long, it can interrupt the flow of
the narrative. I'm several chapters in, and I'm inclined to do a bit of
catching up, but then maybe listening to the recordings at the end of each
chapter.

Even if you don't cycle, I highly recommend this book. There is a ton of
information on birdsong in it!

Cheers,
Mary

From: John Farmer <ajf-jlf...>
Subject: RE: [birders] the local Eagle Nest (Birders: beware, lengthy message with poor pics detailing recent sightings south of A2)
Greg and all,



Acknowledging receipt of both the old message from me as well as your new
one summarizing the NAMC situation. Thanks for dredging up the one with the
Google Earth map of the eagle nest. It gives me the approximate date when I
found the new nest. It doesn't say when I made my first observation of one
member of the pair sitting low in the nest (as in the later pic of same,
below), most likely indicating the recent laying of one or more eggs and the
initiation of incubation.



I've checked other records from my walks and believe that that first
sighting of the eagle sitting low in the nest occurred on February 19, 2017.
If so, and if there was in fact one or more eggs in the nest on that date,
it is interesting. A chronology of nesting dates that I received during the
Breeding Bird Atlas II project for which data were collected from 2002-2007
the suggested time for eggs in Bald Eagle nests in Michigan was March 15-May
14, meaning that the Milan pair began breeding nearly a month ahead of past
records this year!



Based on that sparse, disconnected, and uncertain evidence, an obvious
hypothesis came to mind.Bald Eagles in Michigan may be nesting significantly
earlier in the season as a result of global warming in recent years. I
Googled that thought and came up with a Master's Degree thesis from Clemson
that explored that very hypothesis! If interested, you can find it here
<http://tigerprints.clemson.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1838&context=all
_theses> or here:
http://tigerprints.clemson.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1838
<http://tigerprints.clemson.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1838&context=all
_theses> &context=all_theses /



I have only had a chance to spot check here and there in the thesis as of
now. When I find more time, I intend to skim the paper more closely, but it
looks like the author's (and mine) may have been borne out. Here's a photo
of one member of the pair in a hand-helld shot with digital zoom from 335
yards away:







The bird's head is just above the rim of the nest, to the right of the dark
limb on the left and marked by a pencil-sized twig aligned with the back of
the head.



Incidentally, my recent observations of life on the Saline River behind the
house and from my daily walks of the neighborhood within 2 miles of my house
have included:



Wood Ducks on the Saline River behind the house started 3/9/17.

(Anne saw on in a tree within the past four days, most likely on 3/19/17))



Male Hooded Merganser on the river on 3/11/17.



Rusty Blackbirds at feeder on 3/14/17:







Three Great Blue Herons atop nests in the Mooreville Rookery/Heronry on
3/17/17. No photo. (Doing nest repairs?)



Red Fox running along the bank on Sunday, 3/19/17. (Anne's sighting)



Woodchuck " " " " " " today (3/21/17.
(Again, Anne spotted it first and alerted me in time for me to see it, too.
Nearly every year about this time we see a first appearance of the same
type.it runs north from its den at the south end of our lot along the wooded
bank toward the neighbor's lower pasture and is often seen retracing its
path sometime later. We don't know if it's in search of the first fresh
greenery of the year on the low grounds, or if its sweety is being
immediately after hibernation ends each spring.

Kensington Birdwatching for Beginners
 Sunday, March 26, 2017
 10:00am
 Kensington MetroparkMeet at the Nature Center parking area at 10 AM for a trip around the trails. Bring a pocketful of sunflower seeds to hand-feed the chickadees and titmice. View migrating waterfowl and the Great Blue Heron rookery. We hope to see the Sandhill Cranes that reside there, as well as Red-winged Blackbirds and other early migrants. This field trip is a fun way to bring young birders and novice adults into the birding community. It is suitable for all ages. Young children should be accompanied by an adult. Older minors can bring a completed release form found on the website. Plan to be done by noon. This trip is free of charge, but a MetroParks Pass is required for admission to the park.Leader: Bryn Martin

Subject: [birders] Ross's Goose
A beautiful Ross's Goose today was feeding with a small flock of Canada
Geese about 50' off of the road just before the exit of St Clair Metro Park.
This was at about 3:45 PM this afternoon. I was unable to locate a reported
Saw-whet in the pines at the end of S. River Rd.

Subject: [[enviro-semich] ] Lake St. Clair Master Plan & Natural Resources Public Input Meetings - Metroparks. Saturday Mar. 25. 9 AM

FYI,
Public participation is invited at the Metroparks Natural Resource Dept. presentation and the first (of two) master planning meetings for Lake St. Clair Metropark.The Natural Resource presentation starts at 9 AM, and provides background on the ongoing stewardship at the parks.
There has been substantial progress at LSCMP with adjacent wetlands and the conversion of the massive parking lot to manage storm water runoff with bioswales.
This would also be an opportunity to express concerns, eg about the inappropriate mowing of meadows in July a few years ago that resulted in loss of a number of fledglings, wildflowers, and the habitat they provided.  The Natural Resource Dept. plans to revise the grassland management plan this year; the previous plan designated many new areas for annual mowing and substantially increased the number of acres mowed..

The Master Planning session that follows is informal, not a formal presentation, but allows tor staff present to gather public comments.
A second master planning meeting will be scheduled (in typically about two months) to provide a summary of findings, gather additional comments that will be used to prepare the master plan report for Metroparks Board of Commissioner approval.

Meeting info is at the link below.An online survey is available for public input.The Metroparks planning website includes links to master plans for some other parks that have already been completed.

Subject: [birders] Dead Birds for Science is free Washtenaw Audubon program, Wed., Mar. 15, 7:30pm, Ann Arbor, all invited
Birdersand friends,

 

Pleasejoin us for the free Washtenaw Audubon program below. You do not have to be amember to attend.


 
Wednesday, March 15,7:30pm


 
DeadBirds (...for Science!)


 
Inorder to save birds, we need to save their habitats. But birds have

wings,can't read maps, and don't stay where they're safe. So how can

wecreate a more bird friendly world beyond parks and refuges? We need

toknow HOW they die. What kills birds tells us where we can make

changesto prevent bird deaths in the future. Join Heidi in exploring

thepreventable causes of avian mortality that put so much pressure on

thebirds we know and love, and learn about how valuable dead birds

areto science.


 
Thistalk primarily focuses on window collisions, window collision

prevention,and uncomfortable topics such as wind farms, cats, and

wherebirds go when they die. There is no viewer advisory for the

imagesin this presentation: it is suitable for all audiences.


 
HeidiTrudell is a relentless advocate for birds. Her passion for

preservingincidentally dead birds began in 2003, and her freezer list

sincethen has spanned three states and over 130 species. Heidi has

beena librarian, zookeeper, rehabber, bird guide, and nature blogger

inTexas (bigbendnature.com). She tends the Facebook groups “Dead

Birds(for Science!)” and “The Auk-ward”. Heidi serves as a

coordinatoras well as monitor with Washtenaw Safe Passage, and is

Chairof the Great Lakes Safe Passage Committee for Detroit Audubon.

Shecurrently works at an automotive tech startup in Ypsilanti.


 
Thisprogram is free and open to the public. Membership is not required, though wewould welcome your membership to help with our environmental and educationalactivities. Washtenaw Audubon programs are held at the U-M Matthaei BotanicalGardens, 1800 North Dixboro Rd., Ann Arbor.

 

Inaddition to the program, hear news of the latest critter sightings and fieldtrips, and enjoy tasty snacks following the program. For more information, goto www.washtenawaudubon.org
 
Pleasenote that for Wednesday night’s program, you must enter the building at themain entrance, the hallway leading from the west entrance near the largeparking lot cannot be used to walk from the west entrance to the main lobby dueto construction in the hallway. Wheelchair access is available only by usingthe outdoor sidewalk nearest to the building that leads from the west entranceto the main entrance. There’s no lighting along this sidewalk, so you may wantto bring a flashlight. Also, the only available men’s room during constructionis the one at the west entrance to the building.


 
Hopeto see you there.

Subject: [birders] IVORY GULL found dead
I posted this information twice yesterday mid afternoon from an
Arby's in Flint, but as far as I can see it did not get to the lists.

Joe Prochaska and I drove to Flint yesterday to try for the Ivory
Gull. After watching for it for probably an hour and a half we were
greeted by a U-M Flint grounds maintenance person. He told us that
mid late morning two birders had found the Ivory Gull dead. It
showed no sign of injury, so one can reasonably speculate that the
bird was ill. He did not know the names of the birders but said that
there were certain of their ID and that they intended to donate it to
a collection. As this was at U-M Flint it seems most appropriate to
donate the bird to the Bird Division, UMMZ, Ann Arbor. Anyone who
knows where the bird is now or the names of the birders who found it,
please contact Janet Hinshaw at the U of M. Janet's email address is
<jhinshaw...> Her phone number is 734-764-0457.

I am going to pick it up tomorrow morning, but it will probably be a few

Birders,

For all those birders that are not on Facebook, a donation site has been set up to help Lauren LaFave pay for college and new binoculars. She is 16 and just starting birding and has probably already found the rarest bird she will ever find. People are donating anywhere from $5 to $100! Show you gratitude and support for Lauren.

Subject: Re: [birders] trip to FLA
My thoughts on this are that possibly a dose of a OTC cough medicine
containing an expectorant might be worth a try, thinking that the effects
of the expectorant on the fluids that need to flow between the ear canal
and the nose might flow more freely and not allow a large pressure
difference to build up.

Some of these medicines are mostly if not entirely expectorant-based, but I
don't have a specific name for a brand or a particular ingredient. You
might ask a pharmacist if that might help, and possibly get a
recommendation. My experience with very occasional use of such products is
that they do help deal with the "stuffed-up ear" feeling.

I'd be interested in hearing about your experience if you give ita try.

Just a minor note on Ivory Gull ageing. My understanding is that this
species is essentially a "one year" gull. First winter plumage is highly
variable, but essentially a ny bird with black speckling of any kind seen now
was hatched last year. This species attains full adult plumage by its second
winter.
Awesome bird!
Cheers, Tom

All-

Adam Byrne just relocated the second cycle (we believe, as its missing many
of the standard black upperparts spots one might expect) Ivory Gull
photographed yesterday o n the campus of UM Flint in Genesee Co. It is
currently at the footbridge at the end of Blvd. Dr. in the Flint River, on
the north bank, just downstream of the footbridge, halfway to the dam. Very
close to these coordinates: 43.020392, -83.689635

Good Birding,
Caleb

The Ivory Gull in downtown Flint is still there as of 5:07 p.m.. There were half a dozen birders still present at that time. Look for it east of Harrison Street resting in the spillway. It made two short flights to the west past the Saginaw Street bridge, both times returning within five minutes. Good luck!Patrick Jakel.

March 14, 2017 (Tuesday) 7:30 PM. Join us at the Oakland Audubon Society's
meeting for a "Bird ID Challenge" presented by Holly and Jeremy Joswick. Get
ready to have your bird knowledge tested! The speakers will divide us into
teams to see which team knows the most about birds when looking at photos
and listening to birdsongs.
It’s an unusual program for us, but it will be lots of fun, and you won’t
want to miss it. Meetings are held at the First United Methodist Church,
Thomas Parlor Room, 1589 West Maple Road, Birmingham, MI 48009. Enter the
building from the rear main entrance. Everyone is welcome to attend.

March 19, 2017 (Sunday) 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM Belleville Lake. Leader: Jim
Koppin. Visit the Lower Huron River Lakes for early migrant waterfowl,
gulls, and residents. Meet at French Landing Park, 12090 Haggerty rd., just
south of I-94. We may push upriver near Ann Arbor after stopping somewhere
for lunch, depending on reports and ice conditions.

Please see our website for details about these and other upcoming events.
You do not have to be a member to participate. Everyone is welcome.

Subject: [birders] Washtenaw County One-Road Challenge

Join the 2017 One Road Challenge - Saturday, March 11
Come join in this friendly competition on Saturday, March 11, sponsored by Washtenaw Audubon!Here are the rules and regulations.
- Form a team of at least three people and select a public road in Washtenaw County that is likely to yield a wide variety of species in early March. The following roads are not eligible for the competition: Huron River Drive, Michigan Avenue, North Territorial. All other roads are allowed, but please use good judgment in considering safety in addition to bird-related considerations.
- More than one team is allowed to use a given road. You will not "own" your road.
- Start searching your road as early as you like on the morning of the event (i.e., any time after midnight). Look and listen for as many bird species as possible, stopping not later than 11 AM. Only species observed from midnight to 11 AM will count.
- A species will count if is identified positively by either sound or sight. At least half of your team has to see or hear a species for it to count.
- Your team has to bird together. If you split up, you either become separate teams (if each fragment has enough members), or you move to the Outlaw Division (see below).
- You must stay within fifteen feet of the edge of your chosen road. Any birds seen or heard while you are beyond that range will not count. If your road has a break or a shift, you can only count the birds observed from your road, not the connecting ones. Examples of interrupted roads include: 5 Mile, 6 Mile, 7 Mile, Arkona, Austin, Bemis, Braun, Jennings, Jerusalem, Lima Center, Maple, Morgan, Napier, Northfield Church, Textile, Trinkle, Sharon Hollow, Steinbach, Willow and Zeeb.
- You must stay within Washtenaw County.
- Hybrids of species are interesting, but they won't count.
Scoring:
- In general, each species found will be worth one point; except
- Species found by no other team will receive a bonus point in your team's species count; and
- Teams that include people who have never participated in ANY previous Washtenaw Audubon Society outing before will receive an additional two points for each newcomer, but with a maximum of six of these bonus points per team.
Safety:
- Drive safely and predictably
- Do not obstruct traffic
- Be visible - wear bright colors
- Be courteous and alert
Post-Competition Meeting: We will meet afterwards to compile results and calculate team scores. Meet at the Classic Cup Cafe (4389 Jackson Road) at 11:30am for the tally. The large room has been reserved for us.OUTLAW DIVISION! Too many rules for you? Don't like birding as a team? Don't want to commit to being part of a team because of a potential schedule conflict? Please participate anyway. Only teams that follow all the rules are eligible to win, but we are happy to have others participate and we will be interested in hearing about the birds you find.
Please note that these rules may be subject to revision up to one week before the contest begins.

Subject: Re: [birders] Birding Hawaii
Check out Hawaii Forest and Trail. They can get you into places that are
normally closed to the public. Not cheap, but worth it.

The Pu'u o'o trail (from the saddle road) has nice endemic birds in the
kipukas (islands of forest in the lava flow). It's a beautiful walk.

IMHO the best snorkeling on the island is at a place called Two-Step on the
south Kona coast, near Puuhonua O Honaunau National Historic Park.

I'm leaving in one week for the Big Island. I started studying the birding app for Hawaiian birds but somehow I just need something to hold in my hand and turn the pages. Probably no one else felt this way before? 😎 Anyway does anyone have a book in Ann Arbor I could look at before leaving for my trip?

Also any first-hand advice would be helpful. So our plans are to spend three days in volcanoes national Park, three days at the north end of the island where snorkeling is said to be best and the balance of time on The east side of the island.

Subject: [birders] Canvasback and bald eagle
I have had a lone female canvasback hanging out in my cove with a small flock of mallards the last couple of days. They all started suddenly swimming quickly in one direction, when I noticed a bald eagle chasing a belted kingfisher across the water; then, chasing other airborne birds. Safety in numbers.

Subject: [birders] (OT) URGENT ALERT: Proposed Sale of Wayne County Parkland, meeting tonight
As if things aren't bad enough in Wayne County, County officials are
considering the sale of *250 acres* of prime public park land along the
Rouge River: the Warren Valley Golf Course. This public recreation site,
with ample wetlands, floodplain and river corridor, has been a staple of
life since 1922. The golf course has long protected the Rouge River and
its floodplain in the Middle Rouge Parkway (along Hines Drive) and it
provides significant natural habitats for wildlife and people alike. The
County is proposing to sell it to make way for another housing subdivision,
ostensibly citing a recent operating deficit at the golf course.

County officials persuaded voters to enact a dedicated parks millage, which
generates about $10 million each year, to fund recreational opportunities.
They also promised that the millage would be used to buy additional park
land. Not only has that not been the case, but they are now proposing yet
another sale of public park land.

Dearborn Heights officials are hosting a town hall style meeting to gather
public sentiment about the proposed sale. That meeting is tonight at 7:00
p.m.

Please attend and let your voice be heard.
