Eighteen of us birded the Muskegon County Wastewater properties this morning. We began by driving the rapid-filtration cells. Then we birded the parking lot by the administration building, drove carefully across the gull-filled center dike and checked the landfill area.
Crossing to the southside our caravan turned west at the model airplane field and drove to the end of Laketon. Swanson being barricaded south of the clay pond, we drove north up Seba and back to the north side. After checking out the granery, we drove the seldom-traveled road west along the northern portions of the system and then back to headquarters.
Along the way we recorded 46 bird species despite its being a cold day in March.
