Yesterday started to be mild and today is very mild. It is a bit of a relief after this long drawn out cold and snowy weather. The St. Clair River has opened up with lots of waterfowl to see. Weather is everything when birding....case in point....Wallaceburg CBC.
I made a quick run up to Sombra and there were thousands of waterfowl out there, especially at Fawn Island. Five male Northern Pintails were the highlight. Could have been some females there, but lighting was poor and they were at a distance. Lighting has been poor all month! We have hardly seen the sun at all this December. Day after day is gloomy!
Feeders are slow as usual in this mild weather.
