Remembrance Day Report

Today was a beautiful day, but then Wednesday's usually are!  Yesterday was rainy, so I did not get out for a morning walk.  This morning I checked out Stewart Wetland.  Of course, this time of year things are rather quiet.  Some mergansers with hoods were in the wetland.

On queue Sandhill Cranes were heading east over Walpole Island.  I think it is the same group as last week since the '70' number was familiar.  These large groups often hang around for some time each fall.

A couple of days ago, the scenery was nice with a light fog.  These scenes are at Port Lambton.

Mute Swans

Hon. James L. Oberstar

Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald for those who remember the fateful day.
The Oberstar above, was built just a year later than the Fitz.

Down at Rondeau Park, the Blackburnian Warbler was still present today and has now tied record late!  The park is closed tomorrow for deer herd reduction, but the weather looks brutal anyway with very high winds.  I doubt one would find it anyway.  It will be interesting to see if it is still around Friday or after.

Rondeau seems to be doing well for warblers lately compared to other areas.  Or, at least I have not seen any reports of warbler activity elsewhere.
