Michigan 2009 Part 2

It's a dreary day in Manistique and I am in a hotel recharging batteries for my digital camera, digital video camera and computer.

I am also uploading yesterday's digital recordings and photos.

Here is a photos of the Mackinac Bridge crossing between the Upper and Lower Peninsulas of Michigan from yesterday when it was sunny and 60 degrees F.

I also took some videos of North American birds yesterday.

I am headed to Wisconsin later this morning after a run along the shoreline of Lake Michigan.

Click here for an update on the daylists of birds that I am also maintaining on the trip.

My field work has been generously supported by a Summer Research Grant from Saint Anselm College.


  1. I just happened across your blog and thought I would say hello and what interesting work you are doing! I'm from northern Michigan (not UP, the Traverse City area), and now I live in northern Illinois (about 8 miles from Wisconsin). I will keep checking back, because this is really neat!

  2. HI Jay:

    We had a young moose in the backyard on Monday morning. The rainy weather is making our feeder attractive to the hummingbirds and we even had a female visitor tonight.
    Good luck and we miss you.
