Despite a raw ,damp, misty and rainy day 35 birders in 16 vehicles toured
the Lake Erie shoreline
>From Port Ryerse to Long Point. Long Point bay is still frozen but there was
lots of open water at
Port Ryerse and Turkey Point.Some 56 species of birds were seen or heard by
the group or at least
2 people in the group. Highlights included Tundra Swans,Bald Eagle,great
looks by all of Sandhill Cranes,
a Great Horned Owl on a nest,18 species of ducks and geese,Bluebird a
Carolina Wren [ singing ] and
a Red Bellied Woodpecker [ calling ]. Although not as good as last year's 69
species it was considered
a fairly successful day. Perhaps the biggest highlight was the late arriving
pit stop.
