Checklist Comments

Mostly clear, mid-30s, light west winds. I checked the beach, Dunes, peripheral plantings, Magic Hedge, and Butterfly Garden, and scanned Lake Michigan from the fishing pier. Decent numbers of sparrows, especially in the Butterfly Garden. A couple of late warblers and a late sparrow. The Peregrine Falcons continue hunting from the fishing pier. Also, a yellow Budgerigar. The algae mat on the beach is growing, especially inside the protected area.
