The NAMC for Marion Township held on 5/13/16 was a little lower than average this year with 92 species being observed. Shorebird habitat was non-existent this year with some of the previous spots dried up and others overflowing with water. There seemed to be a general lack of warblers around as well. Still, any time you sped a full day in the field, there will be some highlights. This years was a stunning Summer Tanager. The bird was always high in the trees making photos difficult, but the two below still show identification. Other highlights include the addition of four new species to my three year running total, these being Ring-necked Pheasant, Bank Swallow, Cooper's Hawk and the Summer Tanager.
