Dickcissel

July 08, 2014

The last time I saw a  a Dickcissel I was a teenager. I was riding my bicycle down Burt Road in Hillsdale County when I heard a new bird song. The lovely song was coming from a small bird perched atop a tiny apple tree. I knew immediately that it was my first Dickcissel. I have been wanting to see another one for some time now. So when I heard the reports that birders were seeing one along Damman Road just south of Fowlerville I grabbed my binoculars and camera and was on my way down the road. It wasn't long before I was rewarded with some great views of this singing male. A great big Thank you to those that passed on the location of this beautiful bird.
