A Pronghorn Clubtail was a little more approachable.
Today, Saturday, I went down to Point Pelee. I was more interested in butterflies, but overcast conditions all morning did not help. It was supposed to be mainly sunny today, but as usual the weather forecast was wrong. (and it was a weekend day!).

I saw nothing of note to my eyes!
Butterflies included 3 American Lady, 1 Hackberry Emperor, 1 Giant Swallowtail, among some other common types.
Afterwards, I headed over to Blenheim sewage lagoons. It is getting to be prime time for shorebirds, and there was a fair number to be seen. The birds were rather skittish, so I could not get too close.
Two Stilt Sandpipers were the first of season.
A couple of Short-billed Dowitchers were still present.
There were lots of of Least and Semipalmated Sandpipers. A single Pectoral Sandpiper was an early fall migrant.
|A Couple of Waders|
The male Redhead duck was still present.
