I took my family to the Detroit Zoo on Saturday. It was my first eBird report from Oakland County, Michigan. I was able two add two year birds. I saw fifteen Turkey Vultures (many of which were resting in the polar bear exhibit) and a pair of American Robins. I’m not used to seeing so many Turkey Vultures back home in Essex County at this time of year.
When I came home I kicked myself a bit for not checking the zoo watertower more carefully. eBird indicated there was a Peregrine Falcon resting on the tower while we were there. Ah well, hindsight is 2019?!
