I did see a Snowy Owl along Langstaff Line a couple of times this week too.
Today was nice, but seemed very quiet for birds. Since it was Friday, I headed upriver to Cathcart Park after work. I saw about 6 ducks! Inland there was little to see as well.
Wednesday I decided to head out to Mitchell's Bay after work. It was a little late in the day though. The ice was mostly gone at the Bay as one would expect, and lots of ducks are out there.
I counted 7 Bald Eagles from Dover Beach Park. They are certainly in good numbers anymore.
It was when I got home from the Bay that I heard about Maris, so I got rather side-tracked about the day. First thing in the morning, the hermaphrodite Mallard swam by my look-out spot at Port Lambton.
At noon Wednesday, I ate my lunch at MacDonald Park. I was pretty sure I heard some Tree Swallows, but did not see them. It was a very warm day, and some were spotted in Essex County.
Tomorrow looks like a decent day to be out. Sunday looks like rain ( don't start that again!), and Monday I will be heading up to Dashwood for the funeral. Maybe I will check for that Gyrfalcon which was still hanging around today!
