While searching for tagged Tree Swallows this afternoon, I bumped into
Derek Green out at Michigan Hollow Marsh who alerted me to an American
Bittern right by the road and I was not disappointed. I watched the bird
forage from about 20 yards away for 15 minutes.
I then checked the field right at the end of Michigan Hollow Rd and heard a
Wilson's Snipe calling in the marshy area to the north and then observed
another one flying towards that same marsh as well.
Was not able to located the Gallinule.
I also saw a dozen Wood Ducks.
Quite a good day!
