Made it down to Rondeau this morning. I had my camera, but it was blowing and raining so much I left it in the car. Birds were up close and personal trying to find things to eat in this ridiculous weather. After a few hours of birding I decided to head home and get thawed out and dried out!
One the way out of the park I noticed a Cattle Egret in a field. Actually I almost missed it as I saw a white spot on the dike as I drove by. I had a feeling it was a bird, so I turned around and discovered a Cattle Egret. It was rather distant, but it was the nicest looking one I have ever seen.
A good number of warbler species were in the park today. A Kentucky was on spicebush trail. Lots of Canada Warblers. Still have not seen a Cape May Warbler--my favourite.
Heard an Acadian Flycatcher. Did not find the Olive-sided Flycatcher from the last couple of days. I like that one with its call "Quick-three-beers".
Thrushes were plentiful today.
Back to work this week, so birding will be at a minimum unfortunately.
