Anytime I have an encounter with nature or wildlife, I feel it is an honor and gift.
Did you know that Rufous Hummingbirds are VERY rare to see in Michigan? I was extremely lucky to observe one that got lost (I think) during migration a few weeks ago!
While driving out of Charlevoix (Nino had a gig there), we saw a low flying large “bird”. He was very low to the street, as we were driving right behind him. Both of us instantly knew that it was an eagle.
