A Quick Trip to Michigan

This past weekend, my wife and I along with some of my other family members, headed up to my aunt and uncles house in the country outside of Detroit. It was a relaxing weekend and while it did not involve birding, there were a few nature-related highlights. The first highlight was the pair of Sandhill Cranes that would come out to drink at the pond on the property. They put on quite a show and had no problem with me sitting just 50 yards away. This is one of my favorite shots that I got.
The other highlight was all of the frogs that frequent a pond and waterfall on the property. The most cooperative one was a huge Bullfrog!

Hopefully I will be able to get out birding more over the next few weeks but my wife and I are closing on a new house on Friday and I'm guessing that will take up a lot of time! In September, Eric and I will both be attending the Midwest Birding Symposium. Will we see any of you there?
