October Odds 'n Sods

Yesterday an old friend showed up!  The odd Mallard that has been at Port Lambton for about six years made an appearance.  I had not seen it since late last fall and I thought it has perished.  Where were you all year?
This is a photo from last year.

This morning at my lookout spot, more Sandhill Cranes flew over from Michigan. Seven this time in the early morning light.

It has been too dark to do much in the way of birding first thing in the morning lately, so I stop by Brander Park after work.  Today, an adult Peregrine Falcon was flying overhead while a flock of Yellow-rumped Warblers foraged below, along the woodlot edge.

This evening I got an hour in out at Mitchell's Bay.  It was one of those quieter evenings with no geese!  Only a flock of 20 Killdeer or so in the field.
40+ Pied-billed Grebes were still visible off the dock along with some Black Ducks.
The only notable bird along the trail was a young male Indigo Bunting.

Looks like there is no chance for a good wind at Sarnia for many days, once again.  Lots of SW and West winds lately which I hope bring in something interesting!
Good time for Cattle Egrets, but other things too.
