Many Red-winged Blackbirds were singing especially along conc. D road. A sign of spring.
In the park, I arrived at the Tip lot and Jeremy and Marianne were just leaving (!). Jeremy was heading to Brantford to catch a look at the Gray Partridge. I was left with Richard Carr! We had a nice walk, but not much to be seen. Even Shuster Trail was quiet except for a Winter Wren and possibly a Carolina Wren.
The south end of Hillman Marsh held lots of Canada Geese and a couple of Snow Geese, but no White-fronted. Lots were seen yesterday apparently!
I headed back along the lake to Erieau. Too much ice! The channel was open though and held lots of Canada Geese and some ducks. A couple of smaller geese were in there too, but not sure I would call them Cacklers.

I walked the R/R track trail to the stand. Only a few Tree Sparrows and Song Sparrows.
That was enough.

Just finished compiling my Little Gull records for the Rondeau area. More than I thought! Chip Weseloh is going to some sort of article on Little Gulls, so I will pass on any that I know. Allen Woodliffe is getting all of them in one document.
