Today I went to Point Pelee, but the Snowy Plover had already left! A number of people came to look to no avail. A single Dunlin took its place.
While there, some raptors made an appearance including a Golden Eagle and a Northern Goshawk. Lots of Eastern Bluebirds were moving today at Pelee and Rondeau. Also a meadowlark or two.
After Pelee, I headed over to where the Cattle Egret was reported yesterday. It was there along the fence with the horses. Cattle Egrets have been scarce this year--a far cry from two years ago when they were everywhere. I saw lots two years ago including at three or four I found myself.
The day was still young so I headed over to Erieau. Not much there! I looked out onto the Bay and it was loaded with ducks. Had to be a Eurasian Wigeon or two out there!
Next stop was Rondeau where Yellow-rumped Warblers and kinglets were abundant. On south point trail, I saw another N. Goshawk.
The recent wind has washed out a huge amount of shoreline along south point.
At the campground I found it littered with robins and waxwings. Lots of Fox Sparrows too. More bluebirds.
I checked the ducks off the Rondeau Dock and there were lots of wigeon. I knew there had to be a Eurasian in there, but I could not find it. But, Allen Woodliffe did a little later! I was not surprised.
Tomorrow looks like a better day.
