Two weeks into May and snow flakes are flying over the Trail. Northerly winds and cooler temperatures have dominated the past three weeks. The migration has continued spotty, in fits and spurts. Though despite the exceptionally raw weather on Saturday the 14th, numbers from the Michigan Migratory Bird Count are appearing good according to team leaders in Mason and Manistee counties. Some notables include marbled Godwits (north end of Ludington Sate Park), grey cheeked Thrush, orchard Oriole, and Louisiana Waterthrush in Manistee county.
