Karl Overman: Birds and more

 
 

This bird is distinctly more common in fall migration than in spring in the Great Lakes area.  Typically it is heard first and then comes the search of the skies for this slender bird with undulating flight.  In both spring and fall migration, it has an unusually wide migration window in the Great Lakes area.  In spring, it can be found from late March to the middle of May.  In fall migration it is often present from mid-September, through early December.  Look for it in open farm country, sewage lagoons and the Great Lakes shoreline.
