Spending the winter in Georgia. Had large numbers of robins and bluebirds pass through over the past couple weeks, finches and a few warblers seem to be coming now. Pictured: Bluebird, Carolina Wren, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Pine Warbler and Red-headed Woodpecker. Don Neumann

After renewing my pass and seeing Anita Friend about some club business, I drove around the Wastewater properties this morning. I found nothing unusual: this male Common Goldeneye, a few hundred Canada Geese, several dozen Mallards, a few Gadwall, plus the usual crows, gulls and starlings.

After snapping some site-photos at Muskegon State Park this morning, I drove back to the Muskegon Lake Nature Preserve, threw seed on the pavilion feeders, and watched the usual suspects come in for breakfast.
American Tree Sparrows
Black-capped Chickadee (one of Brian's)
Tree Sparrows out-numbered all others, and there were plenty of chickadees, cardinals and jays plus some doves, nuthatches, juncos, titmice and House Sparrows.

Yesterday (Feb. 1) Ken Sapkowski saw an immature Golden Eagle flying east to west above the pines north of the Wastewater entrance road. White markings on its wings and tail indicated this was not the Golden Eagle reported by Myles McNally (see Jan. 17 post below).
Ken also mentioned a report of Greater White-fronted Geese in Rapid Filtration Cell E5 yesterday and a white-morph Snow Goose in the same general area.
