pandion (King of Athens, father of Philomena and Procne) haliaetus (sea eagle)

Tawas City, Michigan — Lake Huron

I heard a Kirtland’s Warbler singing on the tour, but I didn’t see one.  The lady that led the tour apologized, but that didn’t do me any good.  I couldn’t just drive back to Tuscola with nothing to show for my effort.  I got out the atlas and looked for somewhere to get in some birding.

I drove east to Lake Huron, to Tawas Point State Park, and it turned out to be a good choice.  When I got to the lake, I had trouble finding the park.  I decided to stop in town and get something to eat.  I parked near the harbor and walked along the beach.

An Osprey was flying north along the shore just off the beach.  It flew steady with no glides.  I heard it call a few times.
