I love the sand dunes along the edge of Lake Erie in this location. Almost as white as snow.

I bumped into Brett Woodman at Old Cut and he tipped me off to some Louisiana Waterthrush at Backus Woods north of the park. I hiked through the trails of this beautiful forest and eventually heard that distinctive song.
This one flew up overhead and perched nicely on a branch for me.
Forster's Terns were also present along the lakeshore. These photos were taken a few days prior on Lake St. Clair. Such a beautiful bird!

I plan to be much more active in the field over the next few weeks, so you can expect to see more frequent posts in the coming days,
