I don't think I need to say anything more than the title. I had the day off so I was lounging around watching football when I was summoned to the point as a LUCY'S WARBLER had just been found by Karl Overman, Adam Byrne, and Brad Murphy. I arrived and it was still hanging out with a few chickadees and a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher next to the gift shop. This will be a first record for Michigan if accepted, the first record for the Midwest, and one of less than a handful of records from east of the Mississippi River.
Also seen today were the continuing Northern Gannet, 40+ Rough-legged Hawks, Glaucous Gull, Snowy Owl, and the sparrow trio (Lark, Clay-colored, and Chipping).
Not a bad day overall for northern Michigan in early November.
The following pictures were taken by Karl Overman, and many thanks to him for obtaining such good shots of a tricky bird.
