There were some other highlights - check out the ebird checklist 




We beat some of the big dogs - Detroit River had more birds, but really only more vultures:



Holiday Beach - again, slightly less vultures, but more of everything else - 




Hawk Cliff - closer on the "good stuff" - but actually less vultures.

So many vultures!
