Down at Angler Line in the vicinity where we see the Yellow-headed Blackbirds, there is a new waterfront trail. It runs from Angler Line to Mitchell's Bay. It was opened this spring as a result of a partnership with the Municipality and private landowners.
Yellow-headed blackbird country
Lots of birds and wildlife can be seen here. Closer to the village is a boardwalk and dock that one can overlook the lake and adjacent marsh areas.
I checked it out this evening and it was quite enjoyable sitting on the dock for a while. Lots of different birds were around.
At one point one of the local foxes came by carrying supper.
Several Forster's Terns and even a Caspian Tern flew by.
Dozens of gulls were out over the marshy islands and large flocks of Mallards came in off the Bay.
I saw all four usual heron types, normal for each time I go out there. Great Egrets, Great Blues, Green Heron and Black-crowned Night-Herons live nearby.
