For those of you following my documentary on the King Highway Osprey, I had to make a very difficult decision recently to scrap the project. With all the time, energy, and effort I put into the film, the decision was not easy.

For more information on my decision, please visit my blog for the documentary: WHEN HOPE HATCHES.

A Vibrant Immigrant

Male Blue Grossbeak 
Female Blue Grossbeak

Female Black Swallowtail 
Cedar Waxwing

A breeding pair of Blue Grossbeaks on the Kalamazoo River lit up the social networks of Southwest Michigan, and drew throngs of people from all around to see this rare and pretty bird. 
Normally more southern, the species is expanding it's range and may soon go from exotic and new to just another one of the gang - albeit a vibrant standout. With our constantly evolving and dynamic landscapes, it's hard to say whether global warming is at hand or some other driving force.
