I'm going to Battle Creek, MI for a week in mid-May. Any thoughts for good sites for photos? I'll be going to Kellogg bird sanctuary. Thanks in advance.

I work in Battle Creek, live near by. Yes, you have to hit the bird sanctuary. I haven't been there in about two weeks, but I will probably go by this weekend. It is 5 minutes from my house.

Last year I had a pair of pileateds nesting in my backyard. They normally don't use the same hole again, but perhaps they will be close by. If they are, you would be welcome to pop out and image them.

Lots of sandhill cranes about, gleaning in the fields, etc. Rather hit or miss, but might find some of them about.

The Mich version is pretty shy, compared with the Florida ones, but still some chances.

I will keep thinking about it, and give any tips I can.
