Generally a quiet walk but there were a few birds around, including eight species of sparrows if I include the single junco making its smacking sound. Many of my first of season American Tree Sparrows were found at a variety of locations. A single Fox Sparrow was also seen.

get of an American Tree Sparrow.
Thanks to an upcoming family event I have the opportunity to explore further afield next weekend. Hopefully, I'll have time to get some birding in.
When I checked the blog Urban Dragon Hunters, (in my blog list at right), I found a reference to the blog Michigan Odonotes, which offers a nice description of Crosswinds Marsh. My title box photo shows one of Crosswinds' many views from one of the boardwalks.
