North to Michigan

Birding on the Chicago lakefront this morning was awful.  A cold, fierce wind from the north must have made it as unpleasant for the birds as the birders. Mark V and I had one Redstart at Montrose.  So I left early for Tawas Point which i’ll work tomorrow. This evening I went to Tuttle Marsh.  No N. Saw-wet Owl, but this cooperative American Woodcook kept me from getting shut out for the day.

    John,
    Henslow’s in Michigan! If you are still in Michigan and still need the Henslow’s, I had one calling on territory a few days ago, west of Ann Arbor about 10 miles south of Chelsea off I-94. I can tell you exactly where it is. There were actually two here, email me.
