The highlight today was the Harlequin Duck at the Sombra dock.
I arrived at the site and Rayfield and Donald Pye were already looking for the duck. We soon found it associating with the Mallards. (not much else to associate with anyway!).
It has made count week status for the Wallaceburg CBC, and should be around on Sunday.
A few other ducks were around. Most were Bufflehead.
Two White-winged Scoters, annual but rare for the river, were north of Port Lambton. Too far out though for photos.

The other most numerous waterfowl type was, unfortunately, Mute Swan. I also saw a couple flocks of Tundra Swans on my way up to Sombra.
A Bald Eagle was at Cathcart Park.
A couple of American Robins were at Cathcart Park, but that would not be unusual this year.
I went inland a bit but did not find anything of note.
The Vermilion Flycatcher was still present today, but I did not check it out. Just as long as it stays for Sunday!
