My dad and I decided to take a trip out to Muskegon to enjoy the Purple Sandpipers and bird around the wastewater. The sandpipers were easy, with up to 7 scattered around the south Pier. Photography conditions weren't the greatest, but I gave it a shot.
Besides three White-winged Scoters, not much else seen from the Pier. At the wastewater, we saw two Snowy Owls, and heard of a total of 3 being seen. Here is one.
Also, this photographer took it upon himself to approach the Snowy Owl as close as he could until the bird flew. This was in a field on the entrance road to the wastewater.
We also happened upon two Rough-legged Hawks, as one is sure to do in the winter at this location.
The gulls at the landfill were unexciting, but one adult Great Black-backed Gull did show up for a second.
