Red Knot in the pouring rain....

I got a call from Tom Heatley..... Red Knot (148) on the beach at Metrobeach.... I was in St. Clair seeing a patient..... hopped in my car and flew down the highway as soon as I was done..... Arrived at the same time as Kevin Rysiewski..... we slowly moved toward where we knew the Red Knot was and of course it flew out over the water to the oppisite side of the beach..... We followed it and were both able to get some photos.... all while in the pouring rain... Coat over my camera...  Wonderful colors in this bird.... Thanks again Tom for the call!!!!!!!  

Earlier in the day I had a Black and White Warbler (147) in the woods behind the AMC theatre in Sterling Heights.... also came face to face with a Doe that was protective of her area... stomped her hoof at me trying to scare me.....  Click to enlarge
