2022 Hilites – 30 Dec 2022 

2022 is simply a day far from concerning an end as well as its time to reflect on the year as well as experience again some the hits (as well as misses out on) that specified my birding year. My individual fave needed to be the Gyrfalcon seen at Elizabeth Park in February.

The remainder, in some form of order:

Snow Goose in January on Belle Island.

A journey to Joshua Tree National Forest in February produced several great birds, including this good-looking man Costas Hummingbird that was nesting outside our resort entrance hall.

Closer to house the matchless Bobby Irwin discovered a winter months roost of Lesser Black-backed Gulls in close-by Riverview that permitted a wonderful research study of every one of the year courses of a not-so quickly seen bird.

A journey to Pt. Mouillee in very early April produced a wonderful Piping Plover

Crosswinds Marsh organized a fantastic Yellow-throated Warbler in April!

A reason for party in very early Might when we discovered an infant Eastern Screech Owl fledged from our nest box out rear of your house.

A journey to Ohio produced some great nesting Prothonotary Warblers at Maumee Bay SP.

We made ~ 7 journeys to Cleveland for different art tasks this summertime, as well as a side journey to Advisor Marsh produced some participating Sedge Wrens

Robin as well as I invested the fourth of July in Nebraska, as well as outing to DeSoto NWR as well as Boyer Chutes NWR produced several


as well as Orchard Orioles. Naturally, my miss out on of the year would certainly happen throughout this moment when Justin Labadie (Globe’s Greatest Birder) discovered The United States and Canada’s initial document of a Typical Redshank at Pt. Mouillee. Various other misses out on of the year would certainly consist of Michigan’s initial document of a Limpkin that I did not go after, a Grassy field Falcon in Macomb(?) Area (additionally not chased after), as well as an irritating Nelson’s Sparrow at the Detroit River International Wild Animals Haven that I missed out on by mins on 3 successive check outs.

Late August brought a layoff present in the type of a Sony 600mm f/4 GM OSS lens Impressive picture intensity would certainly be combined with the demand for discovering brand-new muscular tissue memory as well as missing out on a great deal of simple shots.

When it did job I obtained some great pictures of my favored birds: Rusty Blackbirds at Lake Erie Metropark. November as well as December brought an end to a number of bane birds when I was ultimately able to swipe some fantastic pictures of Little Gull

( at LEMP) as well as Black-legged Kittiwake (at Belle Island).

A not likely

Long-tailed Duck

at DRIWR was a suitable end to a light December.

Lastly, after 38 years as a forensics Microscopist at BASF Firm I bade goodbye to the labor force as well as greeted to retired life. As the year finishes it will certainly seem like any kind of typical Holiday trip, yet come January the life occasion might ultimately strike me.(*) In the meanwhile, many thanks remain in order for a fantastic 2022 as well as ideal dreams are created delighted, healthy and balanced as well as flourishing 2023!
