I paddled around Danby’s Michigan Hollow Marsh (not North Spencer Marsh) this
morning from about 5:00 until 8:00. Enjoyed multiple Marsh Wrens, including a
pair in a spot that has been occupied for several weeks now. Then I found an
obviously paired Pied-billed Grebe twosome, who quietly retreated into the
cattails, a likely looking nest site. Mallards and Wood Ducks were leading
ducklings around. And a pair of Northern Harriers (“Marsh Hawks” to us old
timers) were hunting over the sedge meadows, and being harassed by Red-winged
Blackbirds. Believe they’re nesting there again this year.
About 8:30 I drove down the Hollow to find Acadian Flycatcher singing in the
same spot as I reported on 5/17.
