Things are still rather slow. I have not seen much in the way of birds moving lately. I checked out Tilbury S. L. last evening and found the same stuff. A fair number of shorebirds, but nothing new. A good number of shorebirds have already moved through, but nothing in the rare category.
The usual Black-crowned Night-Herons were there, including this one which everyone seems to photograph.
A few egrets kicking around--I stayed until they headed out to their roosting site (where-ever that is!).
About 11 dowitchers were present with two or three being Long-billed. This seems to be the only reliable place to find dowitchers in this neck of the woods. If fact, I have not seen one anyplace else this summer.
Little happening at Stewart Wetland. Down to four Lesser Yellowlegs today and the usual one Great Egret and a few Great Blues. I faithfully check everyday....still waiting....
I did see an immature Black-crowned flying over the St. Clair River this morning at Port Lambton.
