I started off with a quick look at Roberta Stewart Wetland. The water level is the highest I have ever seen it there,so no chance of shorebirds.
It was very calm as I looked towards Walpole Island.
I then headed over to Reid CA for a long walk through the woods.
It was actually quite nice, with many woodpeckers tapping away and few other birds moving through the woods.
Next walk was at McKeough CA where I walked west along the floodway then through a small woodlot which I had not been through in a long time. I used to check this section quite often as it was within one of my squares during the last atlas.
The final walk was at Peers Wetland just outside of Wallaceburg. I sat on a bench for some time watching some of the birds. Some Tree Swallows arrived about a week ago, and Fox Sparrows have showed up this week as well.
With few places to walk anymore looking for birds, it will certainly be a different spring!
