It has been a bit quiet this week around here for birds, but one is always on the lookout. Some birds are getting scarce as the days get shorter (TOO short). As one would expect, some Chimney Swifts are still around and I saw a couple last evening as I was walking downtown Wallaceburg to attend a presentation of IBA's by Mike Burrell. It was a fun evening!
Lots of waterfowl moving in as usual, and Rondeau Bay is filling up. Wigeon are plentiful, and I suspect there is an Eurasian out there somewhere! This weekend....
I went out to Mitchell's Bay this evening, summer home of the legendary Red Fisher. (I enjoyed watching his shows when I was young).
Lots of Canada Geese and a few Snow Geese. Also a few Tundra Swans already.
Clouds were rolling in and it was getting too dark for photos.
Lots of sparrows (hoping for Le Conte's!) along the shore trail, but nothing unusual. There were no warblers except for a couple of Yellow-rumped, and a couple of Eastern Phoebes were hunting for insects.

Thanksgiving weekend is almost here, and I always find it good for birding. Stay tuned!
