New Trail on the Map

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.

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.
