November Winds

Yet another very windy day!  Looks like it will be very windy right through the weekend, but weekends are almost always very windy.  I guess we can only hope the winds blow in some interesting birds.
The odd Franklin's Gull is still being seen such as the one near Blenheim today, or the one up at Sarnia.

November is known for gales, and yesterday was the anniversary of another sinking of a Great Lakes ship.  The Carl D. Bradley sank in Lake Michigan 18 November 1958.  Only two survivors.

Yesterday morning there was a nice sunrise as seen from Stewart Wetland.

I did not see the Sandhill Cranes until after I got to Port Lambton, when t
hey could be seen heading east over Walpole Island.
It was the same thing this morning.  They come from somewhere in Michigan, then head to the fields west of Wallaceburg.

Looking towards the 'Burg

Saturday's weather looks a little nasty, so it will be interesting to see where I can go birding. LOL!

East winds are not good for passerine hunting on south point trail in Rondeau Park.  Maybe a lakewatch at Erieau?
