Great Egret, Snowy Egret, Great Blue Heron!
It seemed rather nervous and flew around a bit, eventually perching in a tree with Great Egrets.
When we first arrived, a large flock of Mallards dropped in, and of course as we approached the pond, they all got up including the egrets.
A few shorebirds were present, but nothing special.
SBD's (No LLB's)
At one point, a Peregrine Falcon came in to scatter all the birds. It gave chase to a Pectoral Sandpiper for the longest time, giving us quite a show. Not sure who won, but this was an inexperienced peregrine that should have caught the sandpiper at some point!
"I am doomed!"
A drive around the landfill revealed a Great Horned Owl on a snag.
A quick check of Blenheim lagoons turned up only one Red-necked Phalarope among the usual species.
After the landfill outing, Steve and I went down to the Erieau R/R track trail and we found quite a few warblers. A large number of Magnolia was present. At one point we had about 8 maggies in a bunch!
After lunch I swung over to Ridgetown and saw nothing different from yesterday. Would someone please find a Marbled Godwit? lol. Getting boring there.....
For one last walk, I stopped north of Wallaceburg and was somewhat surprised to find a worn sedge skipper. Dion or Dukes? Probably Dion, but it was quite worn.
