A FOY Sandhill Crane was on the Keith McLean property. It was a bit distant, but here is a record shot.
I walked the campground again, but it was very quiet today. A Pileated Woodpecker flew over, which was nice to see-a first for the year. They are conspicuously elusive during the winter!
Next stop was the visitor centre feeders. I got a better photo of a titmouse today.
Quite a few American Tree Sparrows were busy working the ground.
Yesterday I saw the first chipmunks scurrying around here. Today I saw another alongside the road come out of a hole in the snow. It went back in, peaked its head out briefly and disappeared. Would have been a neat photo!
Down the road, a mixed flock of blackbirds was chattering away. Probably some new arrivals.
At the park pier area, one can get a good look of the Bay atop a 3m high snow bank.
Where is the parking lot?
Outside the park, just past the Kent Bridge Road intersection, I noticed a Brown Thrasher feeding alongside the road. No doubt it wintered in the area.
A Song Sparrow was virtually beside it, but it would be one that wintered in the adjacent marsh. I saw some earlier in January. A large group of American Tree Sparrows was here too.
After a bit of driving around, I headed home. It seemed rather quiet for birds today.
Robins in many places today
On another note, yesterday I actually photographed a male Wood Duck at the Tip of Pelee. I took a photo of the two 'dark' ducks flying south, not really looking too closely. Thanks to Alan's usual keen eye, I make that correction! A very early spring migrant!
