BLACK-BELLIED WHISTLING-DUCK, FARMINGTON HILLS, OAKLAND COUNTY, MICHIGAN, 19 OCTOBER 2019

www.flickr.com/photos/snow-shadow/albums/72157711442865752
While I stood on the grass between the curb and pond just north of 24558 El Marco in Farmington Hills, the Black-bellied Whistling-Duck swam up to me with accompanying domestic ducks--dumpy over-sized Mallards having curly feathers above the tail, but with patches of white on the head, neck, breast or anywhere else, some simply being dusky throughout. Since I had no handouts for the ducks, they swam to the aforementioned address, walked up the sloping lawn then to the driveway and waited near the doorway. I am aware a wild duck can learn new feeding habits from its domestic associates. Nevertheless, suspicious thoughts of its provenance arose.

YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON, BERLIN TOWNSHIP, MONROE COUNTY, MICHIGAN, 15 SEPTEMBER 2019

www.flickr.com/photos/snow-shadow/albums/72157711091358463
A rare bird in Michigan with casual appearances in unexpected locations such as backyard lawns, urban gardens and zoo grounds. On 26 September 2019: “Efforts to rescue the heron for the Howell Nature Center were thwarted although Alan bushwhacked through mud, phragmites, cattails and deepening water to drive the bird towards Sherri Smith's nets and block its retreat; the bird did not go in the anticipated direction; it circumscribed Alan's location and followed the channel westward until it was no longer visible in the vegetation.”

A rare bird in Michigan with irregular sightings often in unexpected places such as backyards, urban gardens and zoo grounds. On 26 September 2019: “Efforts to rescue the heron for the Howell Nature Center were thwarted although Alan bushwhacked through mud, phragmites, cattails and deepening water to drive the bird towards Sherri Smith’s nets as well as block its retreat; the bird did not go in the anticipated direction; it circumscribed Alan’s location and followed the channel westward until it was no longer visible in the vegetation.”
