|the one behind the yellowlegs!|
Garry Sadler got a nice photo of the bird, as shown on his eBird list of August 20.
More ducks had come in, including a large number of Blue-winged Teal. The crazy Ring-necked Duck was still in the same spot.
I had not been down to Erieau all summer, so I first stopped at the rail trail. A decent array of warblers was working the trees along the trail. However, they were not easy to photograph.
I also walked McGeachy Pond dike where a few more warblers were seen. There was also a Yellow-throated Vireo that eluded the lens. A chestnut-sided Warbler was co-operative though.
A quick stop at Ridgetown revealed an odd-looking goose.
I wanted to check on the rubyspots at Thamesville again, so that was my last stop. There were not as many American Rubyspots as last week, but more Smokey Rubyspots were along the steep riverbank of the Thames.
There was a unique-looking clubtail patrolling the edge, but of course never landed. I wonder what it was....one can only speculate.
