|Sunrise at Stewart|
With the time change on the weekend, there is time to look around in the morning! Monday morning dawned with fog patches. I parked at the Port Lambton riverfront just before work.
|St. Clair River|
There was just enough visibility to see the daily flock of Sandhill Cranes heading east over Walpole Island from Michigan. I counted 83, which is around the usual number for this time of year. The numbers vary each day as there are straggler groups.
Tuesday morning I decided to spend the time before work at Stewart Wetland and perhaps see the Sandhill Cranes directly overhead. I guess they slept in! I did not see any before 8 a.m.
It was nice and calm though.
Today I just parked at the Port Lambton riverfront to see what was around. It was quite windy out of the north, and a few things were moving. First bird I saw was a Common Loon heading into the wind. The first one I have seen in a while there.
A number of Bonaparte's Gulls were moving upriver for a change this morning.
I did see some Sandhill Cranes, numbering over 60. It is a bit difficult to count them from that distance, but sometimes they cross closer.
After work today, I walked around Stewart Wetland, but not much was going on. Hooded Mergansers have been swimming around there, and 13 were present today.
The weekdays I am stuck in the shop at work all day......! New transom in a 30' Chris Craft is the most recent project. It has been a while since I have done one of these, but it is one of my favourite woodworking projects to do.
