48hr Birdathon - Oak Openings Preserve
I chose this sight as one of the designations for my count because of its unusual "plains" type of habitat and the species that breed there. Our target birds were Lark Sparrow, Summer Tanager and Blue Grosbeak... All were seen within the first 15min in the park. The Lark Sparrows are friendly and easily found foraging near the road. The Summer Tanagers were everywhere. One Blue Grosbeak was seen. Red-headed Woodpeckers were abundant..... we only spent about an hour at the park and then headed to Magee Marsh...
