A raft of about 150 Redhead was at Fawn Island, and I later saw the raft flying north while viewing the Harlequin Duck.
The Harlequin Duck was sitting on a spile when I arrived. It was much too dark to get a decent photo even with the built-in flash on the camera.
Virtually nothing to look at all the way up to Sarnia. A few Long-tailed Ducks were at the head of Stag Island.
A few different ducks and gulls were in Sarnia Bay, including an adult Glaucous Gull.
I looked along the rocks for a Common Yellowthroat that the Nethercott's photographed yesterday, but could not find a single bird.
I stopped at a couple of spots on the way home including Moore WMA. A few wintering birds were there, but I could not go far due to high water.

It has been my experience over the years that Yellow-headed Blackbirds are usually associated with large flocks of Brown-headed Cowbirds.

Unfortunately, it is not within any CBC circle and probably half way between Wallaceburg and St. Clair NWA circles.
The flock was quite mobile so I was not able to get any photos.
Perhaps the flock will show up in the St. Clair circle this Friday!
